Introduction to Art History Part II: Rococo to Contemporary

Date: dates TBA
Time: 8 weeks, 6:30 - 9:00 pm
Instructor: Victoria Scott, PhD

Introduction to Art History is designed to familiarize students with important works of art and architecture in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas from fourteenth-century up until yesterday. Throughout the course we will connect works of art to significant social, political, and intellectual developments, but the materiality of the artwork – the building, fresco, painting, sculpture photograph, performance, video or installation under discussion – will always be our central focus.

These courses do not have to be taken in consecutive order! The information taught in each course is independent of the other.

FALL 2016 - Part I of this course took us from the Renaissance to the Baroque period (from the fifteenth up to the beginning of the eighteenth century), underscoring the importance of debate and dialogue between Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. The instructor encouraged you to think, not just about how the artworks were made, but also why they were made.

WINTER 2017 - Part II will begin with Rococo and advance right though to contemporary art today. Focusing on art and architecture from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century, students will come away with a broad overview of the major artists, themes, and movements. At the end of Part I and II, students will be familiar with over 250 of the world’s masterpieces.

Fee: $188 (includes HST)
