At the end of this module, students should be able to demonstrate the following:
- an ability to regularly and punctually attend classes, engage with their lecturers, work to set deadlines, and submit original, non-plagiarised work in accordance with the standards expected at university.
- familiarity with, and understanding of, 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.
- an appreciation of the development of Michelangelo's art and the Mannerist style in central Italy and elsewhere, and the work of key artists of the period.
- an understanding of how Mannerism relates to the theoretical and aesthetic debates of the period and the intellectual, social and professional rise of the artist during the renaissance generally.
- an ability to articulate an appreciation of the particular technical characteristics of Mannerist art, and identify, date, and critically analyse the work of its leading practitioners across the fields of painting, sculpture and architecture.
- connoisseurial skills vital to a competency in the history of art, and with particular relevance to the artists covered on this module.
Lectures will chiefly concentrate on the impact of Michelangelo on central Italian art and art theory and the development of Mannerism as an artistic style in Florence and Rome. The course will also intermittently address Mannerism's pan-Italian character, with regard to other centres such as Mantua and Venice. In addition to supplying profiles of leading Mannerist artists, such as Michelangelo, Pontormo, Bronzino and Giulio Romano, the classes will exercise a strong interest in the aesthetic debates, critical culture, and socio-political upheavals of the period, including the Sack of Rome, the development of the Counter Reformation and the Medici domination of Florentine politics.
