Seminar. Renaissance Art

Maryan W. Ainsworth

Once the realm of a small group of connoisseurs, object-based art history has been transformed over the last century through the technical examination of works of art. Researchers from the fields of art history, conservation, and conservation science are working together in an interdisciplinary manner to evaluate art objects in a field now called technical art history. This course entails a holistic approach to the study of Northern Renaissance paintings that aims to unite art historical concerns with in-depth technical examination of works of art in the Princeton Art Museum and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
