                                  APAH Syllabus 2nd 9 Weeks

Issues to explore in class discussion and written assignments in weeks ten - fifteen:
    What impact did major historical events such as the Crusades, the Black Death, the spread of Islam,
    and the expansion of navigation have on the European mindset and resulting art?
    Why did the Renaissance happen? Why did it begin in Italy? Why was the epicenter in Florence?
    Why do we hear so much about the Medicis?
    What is HUMANISM and what caused its emergence? How can we see evidence of humanism in
    European art and architecture produced during the 14th and 15th centuries? What impact does it have
    on formal elements? How is it reflected in subject matter?
    What effect does the emergence of art academies have on the history of art?
    Why do we see so few female artists in this period?
    What impact does the emergence of strong, centralized monarchies have on art and architectural
    production?
    How do artists depict secular power and authority? How do these images differ from those
    portraying religious power?
    What impact did Popes Innocent VIII, Alexander VI, Julius II, and Leo X have on contemporary art
    and architecture?
    Why did Rome emerge as the center of European art in the 16th century?
    In what ways is it accurate to call Michelangelo the first of the Mannerists?
    What impact did the beginning of the Protestant Reformation and the sack of Rome in 1527 have on
    the development of Mannerism?
    Why did distinctly disproportionate body parts appeal to the Mannerists?
    In what ways were the Mannerists attempting to distinguish themselves from the artists active from
    1500 to 1520?
    Why are the artists of Florence and Rome so much better known by the general public than those of
    Venice? Is the work of Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael inherently superior to that of
    Giorgione and Titian?
    What exactly distinguishes the Venetian style from Florentine and Roman art of the same period?

Issues to explore in class discussion and written assignments during weeks 17 - 19:
    What is the impact of the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic Counter Reformation on
    European art and architecture? How do they influence artistic patronage? How do they shape
    attitudes of the general public toward art? What impact do they have on both the content and form
    of the works artists produce?
    What impact does the Scientific Revolution have on the art of Europe in the seventeenth and early
    eighteenth centuries?
    Gardner's discusses 17th century art in the context of fascination with "matter in motion through
    time, space, and light." How do we see evidence of that fascination in the art and architecture of the
    Baroque period?
    How is art affected by the growing popularity of theater and opera? How do artists incorporate
    theatricality into painting and sculpture?
    How can we account for the artistic explosion in the Dutch Netherlands during the 17th century?
    Why does the center of artistic influence begin to shift from Rome toward Western Europe and
    eventually Paris?
    What is the effect on artistic production of the rise of absolute monarchs, such as Louis XIV?
    How do the works of Baroque artists reflect influences from the
    Italian Renaissance or the Northern Renaissance?
