ART 321 - Early Modern Art & Science

Unit(s): 4

This course explores the shifting relationship between the visual arts and early modern attitudes towards scientific and philosophical knowledge in Europe, c. 1450-1700. The recurring intersections of art, aesthetics, and scientific observation are the vehicle for considering a variety of questions including: What constituted early modern ‘science’? What did knowledge have to do with evolving notions of scientia in this period? How and why did various types of knowledge manifest themselves in the visual arts in early modern Europe? How might the history of science and the arts help inform today’s science-based disciplines about the STEM to STEAM movement today?
