This course will explore the role and status of women in connection to Italian Art from the late Middle Ages to the eighteenth century. After an introduction to key issues and theoretical approaches in the study of women in the arts, the course will proceed thematically and chronologically to explore what it meant to grow up female and what life was like for women from the late fourteenth century through the 1700s.

The course will proceed by analyzing depictions of women including saints, personifications and the Virgin Mary as well as female portraits and the nude--both by male and female artists. This class will furthermore discuss the role that women played as art commissioners.

Students will finally consider the historical and social prerequisites for the appearance of female artists in history and the socio-cultural conditions these women had to live and work under.
