    OVERVIEW

    This course provides students with a comprehensive knowledge of the dynamics of artistic production in the early modern age and an understanding of the artistic artefacts of the time, in relation to the culture, society and territorial context in which they were produced.

     

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The “History of Modern Art” course aims to familiarise students with the dynamics of artistic production from the beginning of the Renaissance to the end of the 18th century.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    This course addresses the dynamics of early modern artistic production by analysing its protagonists and the contexts in which the works of art were commissioned and executed. Consequently, the course provides the methodological skills necessary to approach the understanding and interpretation of figurative documents of the time. The student will have to know the main nodes of the historical-artistic sequence (with special reference to Italy), the most significant commissions and the stylistic solutions adopted in relation to the specific cultural, social and political context in which the production of artistic artefacts took place.

    Specifically, at the end of the course students should be able to:
    
    - place works of art and artists in a correct timeline, linking the artefacts to the historical context and  the society in which they were produced;
    - know the contents of the lessons they attendend and of the set bibliography they studied;
    - demonstrate that they possess the critical tools necessary for the analysis of images relevant to the course;
    - apply the theoretical knowledge acquired to concrete case studies.

    MODERN ART HISTORY

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Oral exam.

    The candidate is invited to recognize, contextualize and discuss significant works of art (among those presented in the texts included in the bibliography), placing them in an art history timeline; he/she will be asked to critically present the themes, artists and issues addressed during the lectures or presented in the textbook or textbooks he/she selected.

    In the case of the 12-credit exam only: in addition to the above,  discussion of the additional texts.

    For non-attending students, the oral examination is conducted in the same way, but knowledge of the contents of the lectures is not required, while two additional set texts are discussed.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The candidate's preparation will be assessed on the basis of his/her ability (acquired through the study of the set texts and, in the case of attending students, through their participation in the lectures) to correctly place the works of art and artistic phenomena under consideration in their time and cultural context, also taking into account the candidate’s fluency and mastery of the relevant lexicon.

    Evaluation scale:

    1. if the student demonstrates that he/she has fully understood the set texts, recognizes and chronologically places relevant artworks, discusses topics with critical awareness and fully appropriate terminology, the examination will be graded between very good and excellent (from 28/30 to 30/30 cum laude);

    2. if the student demonstrates that he/she has mostly but not completely understood the set texts, recognizes and chronologically places some of the relevant artworks, discusses topics with partial critical awareness and a terminology that is generally but not consistently appropriate, the examination will be graded between good (25/30-27/30) and satisfactory (23/30-24/30);

    3. a basic knowledge of the topics and relevant artworks, with only partial understanding and modest critical awareness, with a basic grasp of specific terminology, may still be considered sufficient (18/30-22/30);

    4. Extensive knowledge gaps, lack of comprehension and critical awareness, inability to use specific terminology will be assessed negatively (under 18/30: fail).
