AH 254 - Eighteenth-Century European Art


Credits: 3
An examination of the production and reception of art in Europe at the beginning of the modern era. Special attention will be paid to the ways in which visual representation both expressed and actively shaped the aesthetic, social, political, economic, and intellectual preoccupations of the period. Artists discussed will include Watteau, Chardin, Gainsborough, Reynolds, and David. Themes explored will include shifting conceptions of public and private life, engagements with nature and antiquity, the status of the artist, and the role of portraiture in the construction of identities.
Note(s): (Fulfills humanities requirement.)
