OVERVIEW

The course deals with the evolution of the sculptural production in marble and wood from the second half of the sixteenth century until the late Baroque period, with particular reference, for the profiles of the artists, the cultural weaves and the role of the client, to the Genoese area and, tangentially, to the Roman pole.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course offers an articulated overview of the development of sculptural production between the 16th and 18th centuries, through the dialectical deepening of aspects connected with the training of artists, relations with the client, the circulation of models and the use of various techniques. The privileged point of view to proceed with a parallel reading between regional areas (in particular Tuscany, Lombardy, Veneto and Rome) will be the Genoese area.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course offers an articulated overview of the development of sculptural production between the 16th and 18th centuries, through the dialectical deepening of aspects connected with the training of artists, relations with the client, the circulation of models and the use of techniques and materials. We will examine not only the results of the large marble sculpture, with the pivotal role assumed and radiated by the Roman context, but also those of the wooden statuary, in its multiple functions, in the parallelism between regional areas, in the complex executive phases and in the wide diffusion of the artefacts in the Mediterranean basin.

PREREQUISITES

In order to successfully follow the course, knowledge of the history of modern art acquired during the attendance of the three-year degree course in Conservation of Cultural Heritage (or similar to the Old Order) is fundamental.
