The course will be carried out through frontal lessons, supported by PowerPoint presentations, dedicated to the main artists, art movements and key issues of the hiistorical-philisophical-artistic events that characterized the period that went all the way to The Renaissance and to Neo-Classicism.
The student must show knowledge of disciplinary contents, must be able to analyze works, authors and art periods in a coherent and articulate way, historically contextualizing them, expressing a correct and motivated critical evaluation ( also personal ones) also referring to the study career and the experience acquired. Therefore, the student must be able to place the work both in the correct timeframe and recognize style and technique.
Methods of evaluation
The final test shall verify the degree of knowledge of the main protagonists of Art History, from the end of the fifteenth century to the beginning of the nineteenth century, of the main artistic movements and of the historical-aesthetic aspect of art language.
The student will have to prove that he can place the work in the appropriate historical-artistic context, within the personal experiences and relationships of the artist ( commissions, work contents and finality, technical-formal characteristics) i.e. he must show that he can properly read and understand the style of the work itself.
