At the end of this module, students should be able to demonstrate the ability to do the following:
- regularly and punctually attend classes, engage with their lecturers and tutors, work to set deadlines, and submit original, non-plagiarised work in accordance with the standards expected at university.
- be familiar with, and understand, a range of recommended set texts and critical/ theoretical sources relevant to the course, and be able to work under test/ exam conditions without reliance on lecture notes or other learning aids.
- identify and explain those factors involved in the rise in the social and intellectual status of the artist during the European Renaissance.
- recognise the main stylistic developments in European Renaissance art and architecture.
- identify the works of key artists and their significance within the European Renaissance.
- relate such issues to the wider concept of the Renaissance as a period of revival and reform in Western culture.
Many of the notions governing our perception of the artist’s role in society stem from the Renaissance; as we explore changing patterns of artistic production, techniques and patronage, a dramatic story begins to unfold: the artist’s rise from the status of craftsman to that of an intellectual, capable of winning ever greater social, professional and intellectual esteem.

This module would work particularly well alongside AH10130 The Art of the Ancient and Medieval World. Together with the spring modules AH10140 Baroque to Romanticism and AH10150 The Modern World, these four modules combine to offer an overall foundation in the history of Western Art from antiquity to the modern era.
