a two-page (double-spaced) paper, in which you consider Baxandall’s claims about the period eye and apply
them to Carlo Crivelli’s Madonna and Child(treated in “Do You Speak Renaissance?”). Begin by briefly
summarizing Baxandall’s argument: what is the period eye, in his view, and what is its art historical
importance? Then move into a concise analysis of the idea. Identify several potential strengths and
weaknesses in Baxandall’s idea, explaining your reasoning and pointing to specific passages in the Duke of
Milan’s letter and/or “Do You Speak Renaissance” as evidence.
The post Italian Renaissance first appeared on COMPLIANT PAPERS.
