This course will focus on European painting of the Early Modern period, discussing its conception, patronage, and historical significance. A leading spiritual and political force, the Church of the Counter Reformation fostered a new reverence for the transcendent power of images, urging us to question the relationship between the visual arts, social change, and religious strife.
