In this course we will examine the lives of two great Renaissance artists, Michelangelo and Leonardo. We will get a sense of how their careers developed over many decades, and how they revolutionized the arts of drawing, painting, sculpture and architecture. We will explore notions of creative genius to determine what made these two individuals seem exceptional to their contemporaries. In the end, we will consider the intricate art of writing biographies of truly complex artistic personalities: who were these two men and what did they achieve in their lifetimes?
