Synopsis by Sally Barber
Giotto and the Pre-Renaissance explores the major works of Florentine painter, sculptor, and architect Giotto di Bondone. Considered the first genius of the Italian Renaissance, the innovative artist focused on religious subjects, lending them powerful emotion and a three-dimensional quality. This program provides a highly detailed study of Giotto's key frescoes, including the masterpieces of the Upper and Lower Church of San Francesco, Assisi, and St. Croce in Florence. Other related programs are The Greek Temple, Picasso: War, Peace and Love, Le Corbusier, Goya, and Germany: Dada.
