FROM UTILITY TO LUXURY: DECORATIVE ARTS OF THE RENAISSANCE/Introduction

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

Introduction


Whereas traditional art history has centered on painting, sculpture and architecture, the so-called ‘decorative’ or ‘applied’ arts are the focus of renewed interest. This course will explore the techniques, varied contexts and meanings of Renaissance Decorative Arts. Contracts indicate that arts such as furniture and metalwork were incredibly expensive commissions and functioned as potent status symbols. For religious communities, items such as metal reliquaries were imbued with sacred importance, while in the domestic context, richly decorated possessions were indicators of wealth and standing.
