From the rivalry between and within the republics of Siena and Florence to papal rivalry amongst the ruling families of the Italian peninsula, this course investigates the art that was commissioned during, and how it helped define, the Renaissance period.

Recommended reading.

No pre-course activity is required, but if you wish to do background reading, the following books are useful:
- Paoletti, John T and Gary M Radke (2011) Art in Renaissance Italy (4th edition), London: Laurence King.
- Vasari, G (1987) Lives of the Artists, Volumes I and II, a selection translated by George Bull, London: Penguin Group.

Target audience:
If you are interested in art history generally, thinking of travelling to Italy, or even joining the Victoria Continuing Education Renaissance Rivalry study tour to central Italy in late September - early October 2017, this course provides contextual insights into the art of the Renaissance.
