"Italian women artists of the Renaissance and Baroque" aims to provide the first survey of women professionally active as painters, engravers and sculptors in 16th and 17th century Italy, and to document the socio-cultural context that contributed to shape their lives and oeuvres. This catalogue, published in association with the travelling exhibition which opens at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington D.C., examines the artistic practices and achievements of these remarkable women who managed to gain public, if not, international acclaim. The catalogue features 60 outstanding works by a dozen of foremost Italian female artists (Properzia de' Rossi, Sofonisba Anguissola, Lavinia Fontana, Artemisia Gentileschi, Barbara Longhi, Fede Galizia, Lucia Fretti, Chiara Varotari, Elisabetta Sirani, Orsola Maddalena Caccia, Giavanna Garzoni), and offers an unparalleled opportunity to understand their social predicaments, appreciate their personalities and assess their stylistic developments

The Enlightenment : a unit of study for grades 7-10 by Carole Collier Frick( Book )

3 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this unit is to explore the ideas and ideals of the 18th century Enlightenment thinkers called the Philosophes, and to understand how they continue to influence basic notions about the nature of man and his world. The unit introduces key members of the Philosophes through short excerpts from their works. The selections illustrate the social concerns of Enlightenment thinkers in society, politics, and education. Through a study of primary sources, the works of Montesquieu, Rousseau, and Condorcet are discussed. Voltaire and the "enlightened despot" Frederick the Great also are introduced, as is the revolutionary "Encyclopedie" of Denis Diderot. The unit ends with the influence of the Enlightenment on the New World through a lesson on Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence. The ideals of the 18th century Enlightenment acquaint students with the vision of the perfectibility of man through the power of reason, which laid the basis for the notion of egalitarianism at the heart of the French and American Revolutions. Fundamental issues such as the basic nature and rights of man are discussed, as is the value of reason over tyrannical authority. This unit also shows the relationship between ideals and their practical application in society. Through the use of primary sources both written and visual, the student is able to experience the age of reason. By learning about the Philosophes, the student will develop critical thinking and inductive reasoning. Contains 13 references. (Author/DK)
Crowning the cathedral of Florence : Brunelleschi builds his dome : a unit of study for grades 7-10 by Linda Symcox( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unit focuses on a dramatic moment in the Renaissance from about 1420 when Filippo Brunelleschi single handedly created, defined, and engineered a new architecture by building the great dome of the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. The dome became the symbol of Florence's grandeur during the Renaissance, and a model for great public buildings. Brunelleschi was among the first to undertake a systematic study of ancient Roman architecture both as a model of the architectural grandeur that he felt had been lost during the Middle Ages, and as a model for spatial organization and large-scale engineering that had been forgotten in Western Europe. He combined his new found knowledge of Roman design and building techniques with his own vision, defining a new aesthetic for his own era. One of the great monuments of western architecture, the dome provides a model for a whole tradition of grand public building. It represents a classic case study of the interaction between the collective energies of a community and the genius of an individual. By studying Brunelleschi's grand vision for the dome to crown the cathedral, the economic and political background against which his dream became a reality, the great competition organized by the city for the commission to build the dome, the engineering challenges which had to be overcome, and the impact of Brunelleschi's work on future generations, students will begin to understand and appreciate the creative surge which took hold in Florence and other parts of Italy during the Renaissance. Contains 11 references. (Author/DK)
