Master and transitional artists from the late 14th century through the 19th century form the main content of this, the second course of the three-course survey sequence. In general, this course studies major realistic images in two- and three-dimensional formats. Development of art movements in the western artistic tradition, combined with innovations in art production of the time, help the student identify influences upon succeeding art movements and the artists’ intents while executing their works. Movements include Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Romanticism, and Modern art of the late 19th century. Students use analytical and contextual analysis as the main tools of the contemporary research methods, which are presented in this course. Frequent visits to the St. Bonaventure University Art Collection,
which is housed in the university’s The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts, give students a unique opportunity to study original works of art, their preservation, conservation, and restoration.
