Primary Instructor:

During the 13th and 14th centuries, the city of Paris was pre-eminent in the arts. Parisian artisans, serving a broad urban clientele, created trend-setting works of art that exerted an influence in all parts of Europe. The first part of this course will be devoted to reconstructing the medieval city and to becoming acquainted with surviving architectural monuments (e.g. The Cathedral of Notre-Dame, the Sainte-Chapelle). The second part will concern the making and marketing of precious objects in all media: illuminated manuscripts, ivories, works in gold, silver and enamel, tapestries. Issues of royal, aristocratic, and bourgeois patronage will frequently come to the fore. The course offers a vivid introduction to Gothic art, architecture, and urbanism. D. 2
