ART 231 - Art History Renaissance to Modern

3 Credits

In this class students gain a greater understanding of Western Art History from the Renaissance to the beginning of the Modern Era. Using the text and online resources "Gardner's Art Through the Ages" students study Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Neoclassism, Romanticism, Realism, and Photography, among others. Students will also study a brief survey of non-western art after 1200 CE. Art is as much about the cultural shifts surrounding the making as it is about the pieces themselves. In this class you will learn about great artists, art works, and the social forces that brought them about.
