ART 3650 - The World of Michelangelo

Credits: 4
The course will deal with the life, art, and times of Michelangelo: the history of Florence from the age of Lorenzo the Magnificent to the end of the city’s Republican institution and the installment of the hereditary Medici rule; the history of the papacy, its attempts to combat the crisis of faith within the Church, and its struggle with the monarchs of Europe; and with Michelangelo the man, the artist, and the Christian, who in his life sought but was unable to stand apart from the conflicts of his epoch, and in his sculpture, painting and architecture, drawing and poetry, gave expression to these conflicts with a scope and depth equaled by none of his contemporaries. Few were able to escape the power and reach of his influence. His age saw itself through the images that he created for it.
