Module 3 Required Resources

About These Resources

One of the most notable time periods for art is the Renaissance period. The readings for this module will open the door to the masters of this "rebirth" period and shed some light on their improved techniques and the changing landscape that was reflected in their artworks.

Next, the Colonial settlement was the driving force behind the many changes during the 17th and 18th centuries in the art world. Influence from around the world began to spread, which developed into a significant art period. These readings will explore the Baroque era and make connections between the revolutions of the 18th century and this timeless art period.
