At the end of this module, students should be able to demonstrate the following:
- an ability to regularly and punctually attend classes online or in person, work to set deadlines, submit original, non-plagiarised work in accordance with the standards expected at university.
- familiarity and understanding of a range of set texts and critical/ theoretical sources relevant to the course, and be able to work under test/ exam conditions without reliance on supplementary notes or other learning aids.
- the ability to identify and explain those factors involved in the rise in the social and intellectual status of the artist during the European Renaissance.
- recognition of the main stylistic developments in European Renaissance art and architecture.
- the ability to identify the works of key artists and their significance within the European Renaissance.
- how to relate these issues to the wider concept of the Renaissance as a period of revival and reform in Western culture.
Many of the notions governing our perception of the artist’s role in society stem from the Renaissance; as we explore changing patterns of artistic production, techniques and patronage, a dramatic story begins to unfold: the artist’s rise from the status of craftsman to that of an intellectual, capable of winning ever greater social, professional and intellectual esteem.
