Sculpture Through the Ages: Depictions of the Human Body

What do Michelangelo’s Pieta and Huma Bhabha's groundbreaking "characters" have in common? They are separated by 500 years, but both depict the human form. The representation of a person in three dimensions has fascinated artists from the earliest times to today. This survey class will explore how artists from the Renaissance to the 21st century produced sculpture and how their ideas regarding resemblance, movement and expression changed. The boundless desire to create our bodily likeness in space and to tell stories is evident in the works by Donatello, Michelangelo, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Antonio Canova, Auguste Rodin, Camille Claudel, Edgar Degas, Louise Bourgeois, Isa Genzken, Yinka Shonibare, Antony Gormley, Kiki Smith, Simone Leigh and many others.  Spring 2024 tuition is $849.
