AH 319 - Inventing Artists


Credits: 4
Explores the identities of European and North American artists during the 18th and 19th centuries. Students will examine how social norms and biases shaped the ways in which artists defined themselves and were defined by others. Case studies will address conceptions of race, gender, sexuality, socio-economic status, mental health, and nationality. We also will consider how artists were trained; how they engaged with patrons, consumers, and critics; and how they imagined the cultural value of art.
Prerequisites: One Art History course or permission of the instructor.
Note(s): (Fulfills humanities requirement; fulfills humanistic inquiry.)
