Course Description

The altarpiece was one of the most important artistic productions before and during the Renaissance. This course introduces the history and meanings of altarpieces using examples from the Netherlands, Germany and Italy. Our examples range from single paintings to complex painted and carved narratives displayed across huge panels with moving parts and hidden compartments. We will examine their role as a backdrop to the Mass, and explore what happened when Protestant reformers questioned that role and called for their destruction.
