ART H 497A
Issues and Explorations in Italian Sculpture, from Antiquity to Neoclassicism (3) Among the canonical arts of disegno formulated during the Renaissance, sculpture has been the most consistenly overlooked and marginalized by modern art history-until recently, that is. In the past decade or so, a new wave of appreciation and scholarhsip has begun to remedy the situation, and a host of new studies have focused on the fascinating and sometimes disturbing manifestations of representation in three dimensions. In this course, we shall explore some of this new scholarship, as well as more traditional and, in some cases, overlooked or underappreciated approaches to the "problem of sculpture." In the process, we chall consider the material, technical, social, and theoretical aspects of the art from Antiquity and the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, and from the Baroque and to the Neoclassical era: periods when the representations of "the body in three dimensions" played a central role in cultural expression.
