Description:
This course serves as an introduction to the history of art from 1400c.e. - present, beginning with Late Gothic and Renaissance art to neoclassical and romantic periods... During the next fifteen weeks, we will survey a selected number of images and monuments produced over nearly 4500 years, with a concentration on Europe as well as non-western art and architecture. In this course we  will consider not only the works of past cultures, but also how historians have interpreted them. We will consider the possible ideological and social contexts of the images, as well as their traditional  "explanations." Attention will be directed towards an awareness of artistic styles and developments,  to the relationship of art to its ideological and historical contexts, and to the multiplicity of meanings in works of art
