Credits: 3
A study of visual culture in France between 1785 and 1815, with a focus on the French Revolution.

Students will examine paintings, caricature, and designs for festivals and clothing, giving particular attention to the display and dissemination of art and design; modes of spectatorship; issues of class, gender, and citizenship; and the role of the artist in revolutionary culture.
