QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY V E N I C E
 

Summary: QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY
V E N I C E
SUMMER SCHOOL 2012
Art History 245
Art and Architecture in Venice
The Department of Art is pleased to announce the 42nd Queen's Summer School in Venice, which will be
held from 2 to 28 May 2012. This course will examine the art and architecture of Venice and its region with
a focus on the Middle Ages and Renaissance. All instruction is onsite. We will go on morning study tours of
churches, palaces, public buildings, and museums, plus full day-trips to sites in the lagoon and on the
mainland. We will take advantage of experiencing architecture, sculpture, mosaic, and painting in their
original settings, in order to study how the structure of Venice as a city built on the water affects its art, the
subtleties of colour, and the rich varieties of materials and techniques. By exploring the complex workings of
this incomparable Renaissance city, which survives largely intact, we will also examine the political,
religious, and social contexts for art. In particular, we will study the works of the Bellini, the Lombardi,
Giorgione, Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese, and Palladio, among others.
