Introduction to the visual arts, primarily painting, sculpture, and architecture in the Western World from Renaissance to present. Prerequisite: It is recommended that ARTH 005 be taken before ARTH 006.
CDE students only even after level restrictions are removed; Degree students enroll in ARTH 006 A total combined enrollment = 174
In this course, we will examine art, architecture, and creative expression in Europe and the Americas, from the Renaissance to the present day, but also critically examining the more global contexts in which this art was produced. We will explore art historical concepts such as style, form, and technique, and we will examine the social, political, economic, and religious contexts that inflected the making and meaning of art. Via assignments and in-class activities, students will investigate major recurring themes and issues in the history of Western art, such as: the artistic legacy of Greco-Roman antiquity, the role of art in religious practices, definitions of ‘beauty,’ and art as political expression.
