History of Western Art 2

Valerie S. Grash, History of Western Art 2, Spring 2018

Course Description:

This course is a penetrating inquiry into the major accomplishments of Western art (painting, sculpture and architecture) from the Renaissance through the Modern era. The sterile museum environment in which we find it today most often shapes our perception of art, and past architecture is frequently viewed merely as romantic ruins disconnected from the modern world. However, both art and architecture were intimately integrated into every facet of the pre-modern person’s world, actively part of and used in daily life, reflecting and shaping the culture for which it was created—and some of these artifacts and places continue to wield tremendous influence today. With that in mind, we will examine not only great monuments and artists, but also contextual issues concerning the creation of art, including religious, political, economic and social conditions that existed in specific societies at specific moments in time.
