Art of the Northern Renaissance
Osher (50+). This course explores the history and art of the Renaissance.
About this course:The Renaissance, reaching its height at the end of the 15th and early 16th centuries, is really a collaboration of a widespread amount of influences and traditions. Although its most clear expression is seen throughout the art of Italy, its development is deeply impacted by the style and structure of the art of Northern Europe. The regions of Northern France, Germany, the Netherlands, and England are known for their meticulous and naturally rendered art, the mastery of oil paint and the development of the printing press. Expansive trade and commerce created a thriving economy and resulted in rich cultural exchange and a burgeoning open art market. In this course, we specifically focus on the origins and development of these artistic developments in the regions north of the Alps and how they impact, influence, and merge with the art of the Italian Renaissance.
