We will consider a wide range of objects and media--including mosaics, manuscripts, paintings, sculptures, and prints--as well as building types ranging from churches to palaces and villas. Students will come away with an understanding of the dominant trends and major figures as well as the shifting ideals that shaped creative expression for more than a millennium.
