ART 231 - Art History II

3 Credits

In this class, students develop their understanding of Western Art History from the Rococo to the present. Using the text and online resources “Gardner’s Art Through the Ages,” students study Rococo, Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, through the major “isms” of the Modern and Contemporary eras, concluding with themes in the art of the present. Students also study a brief survey of non-western art after 1200 CE.  Great artists and specific works of art, as well as the social forces and cultural shifts that brought them about, are integral to the course.
