Art of the Mediterranean

Art of the Mediterranean

The course focuses on the analysis of the artistic representations in three of the most significant countries of the Mediterranean world: Italy, France, and Spain. In this context we will study the work of some of the most representative artists of different styles: the Renaissance of Leonardo and Miguel Ángel, the Baroque of Caravaggio, David's Neoclassicism, the Romanticism of Delacroix, the Realism of Courbet, and the Impressionism of Manet, Renoir, Monet, or Degas, without forgetting the contribution of Spanish painters so significant as Velázquez, Picasso, Miró, or Dalí. Although the chronological period is very wide, from the 15th- to the 20th-century, we will be able to observe an interrelation between the artists of different creative centers and a stylistic continuity that only breaks at the beginning of the 20th-century.
