ARTH728 - ROMAN ARCHITEC & TOPOG

Research on Vitruvius' ten books on architecture, art, and construction. We will explore structure, sources, and intended readers of this treatise; formation of art theory and its relation to practice; statics and esthetics; Greek model vs. Italic tradition; descrepancy with the ideals of the "Augustan Revolution"; role and reception during the Renaissance and late Classical revivals (using Penn's rich collection of 16th to 20th c. Vitruvius editions); latest wave of Vitruvian scholarship. - Working knowledge of Latin, French, German helpful, but not necessary.
