1.Visit the Gubbio Studiolo at the Metropolitan Museum that was originally made for the Duke of Urbino. Describe it. Date. Location. What is it made out of? Discuss its use of illusionistic perspective. What is a studiolo? What role did this new type of private room have to do with what it meant to be a cultired person-a Renaissance man or woman? Examine the contents of the shelves and discuss how they are a portrait of the Duke and what they tell us about the activities considered necessary of desirable in becoming a Renaissance individual? Can yo tell what kind of music the Duke liked by the musical instruments depicted? Count the number of books. What is the significance of the canary? What is an armillary sphere? where is it located? Write about this space so its clear you visited it. If you were making a studiolo for yourself what might it include.
2.Discuss the invention of perspective in the Renaissance. Which artist can be said to have invented it and how did he demonstrate how it worked? Find a pre-prespective picture at the Met and describe it. Try to find a Roman painting of the architectural style and describe its use of pespective. Piero della Prancesco write a book on perspective and looking at a painting og his explain how he rigorously applied it to his work especially in the representation of 3D forms. Discuss how the Renaissances use of perspective is different from the systems of showing architectural forms in space used by Duccio and the ancient Romans. How did Twentieth century art such as Cubism destroys perspective and why? Describe a Cubist painting at the Met. You might want to consult John Whites The Birth and Rebirth of Pictorial Space. Look at Brunelleschis Dome by David Ross for more stories about Brunelleschis invention of perspective.
