Abstract:

Thirty-six lectures of thirty minutes each by William Kloss, independent art historian with Smithsonian Associates, the Smithsonian Institution. These lectures cover the art historical periods known as the Early Renaissance and the High Renaissance, which extended from about 1400 to about 1520. No era of artistic achievement is as renowned as the Renaissance, and no country holds a higher place in that period than Italy. The supreme works created in Florence, Rome, Venice, and other Italian cities by such masters as Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Titian have never been equaled and have established a canon of beauty that pervades Western culture to this day. In this artist-centered survey, many works are explored in considerable depth, while also examining hundreds of different paintings and sculptures by scores of different artists.
