Sixteenth-Century Venetian Painting: Giorgione to Veronese

This module explores painting in sixteenth-century Venice, emphasising the roles of a series of major figures: Giorgione, Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese. Their work represents a great flowering in the development of oil painting in this period. Stylistic and technical developments will be considered and related to their political, religious, philosophical and social contexts. Themes covered include state and private patronage, the impact of the Counter Reformation on religious art and the development of secular painting including portraits, landscapes and mythologies.
