Art History Course: The Art, Life, and Myth of Michelangelo
Art History Course The Art, Life, and Myth of Michelangelo presented by Tamara Smithers, associate professor, Department of Art and Design, Austin Peay State University.
This three-part class introduces the major artworks and life of the great Italian Renaissance master Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564). Explore the artist’s sculptures, drawings, paintings, and architecture—and the cultural context in which they were created—from his early career in Florence to his final years in Rome.
Dr. Smithers will discuss Michelangelo’s major works in sculpture, drawing, painting, and architecture as well as his working process. Attendees will also learn how to read the meaning of Michelangelo’s artwork within the cultural, historical, political and social context of Italy during the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
