FAH 315 - Michelangelo and his World

A seminar exploring Michelangelo’s life and work as a painter, sculptor, architect, and poet, as well as his relationships with family, friends, enemies, and powerful patrons.  We examine the social, political, and religious influences on the daily life and creative achievements of Michelangelo and his contemporaries, and consider how the legends of Michelangelo’s terribilità (terrible genius) have shaped our understanding of the visual arts, the cult of genius, and the genre of biography throughout history and today.
