Course offering for spring 2023: Art History

An art history course next semester that will have an emphasis on book arts, printing, and letterpress is Northern Renaissance Art (ART 3860). Northern Renaissance Art looks at art in Germany, France, the Low Countries, and England from 1400-1600. This period in Europe saw the development of letterpress, intaglio, and relief printing, and was also a rich period for the illuminated manuscript book. The class day and time is Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:40-4:05.

Below are some images of artworks we will be studying:
