Introduction to Art History Part I: Renaissance to Baroque

Date: September 27 - November 15
Time: 8 Tuesdays, 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.

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

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. COMING THIS WINTER
