Art and Passion in 17th Century Europe - ARHT2612

Year - 2018

At the great courts of the seventeenth century, artists painted, sculpted and built vast programs of works to completely overwhelm the senses. Grand pavilions and gardens, sumptuous clothes and d├ęcor, and extravagant spectacles drew audiences into a world shaped by artifice and etiquette. This course will consider why the artist was an essential ally for those with absolutist ambitions.
