Slack channel #week5part1

  • Printmaking and the Printing Press: The printing press and printmaking techniques allowed for the endless reproduction of texts and works of art. How does this complicate the idea of High Renaissance art and artists as individual and unique (one-of-a-kind)?

  • The Protestant Reformation: After Martin Luther published his 95 Theses parts of Northern Europe and England rejected the visual trappings of the Catholic Church. This resulted in new genres and styles in art. Compare and contrast works of art during this time period that were made in service of the Catholic Church and those that responded to the message of the Protestant Reformation.
