|FACULTY OF VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS|
The course will examine a large variety of sculpted portraits made in Italy from the Quattrocento
throughout the Seicento. We will consider both questions of function and theoretical aspects of the
sculpted portrait. Apart from a regional approach (Rome vs Florence vs. Venice) we would try and
examine different forms of portraits, from the marble bust to wax and bronze coins.
