Dante, Spencer, and the Medieval and Renaissance artists shared a sublime view of the world as a work of art, itself a cosmos in which mankind was a microcosmos. The purpose of the arts was to imitate the “goodly sights and glorious images” of the cosmos and thus to produce deep imitations. This session explores the underlying ideas that produced some of the greatest works of art the world has ever seen and whether those ideas contain any contemporary value. At least this workshop will make these works of art more accessible and more teachable.
