Baroque Art

Valerie S. Grash, Baroque Art, Fall 2014

Course Description:

The Protestant Reformation brought about not only a strong Catholic Counter-Reformation, but also entirely new economic and social conditions under which art and architecture thrived in 17th- and 18th-century Italy, Spain, Flanders, Holland, France, and England. In this course, students will closely examine how societal conditions affected the creation, type, subject matter, and meaning of this art through readings, classroom discussion, and visual/contextual analysis.
