Venice Through the Eyes of Artists
Through the centuries, the light and watery landscape of Venice has inspired countless artists. This course will explore a city that has changed little but has been viewed differently by artists from the Renaissance to today. We will look at artworks by local and visiting artists such as Giovanni and Gentile Bellini, Canaletto, Marco Ricci, Joseph Turner, John Singer Sargent, Claude Monet, Paul Signac, Jane Peterson, Alfred Stieglitz, Sophie Calle, and Inge Morath. Paintings and drawings will be juxtaposed with photographs to show the special topography.
