ART 126 AG - Art of the Western World

Minimum Credit(s) Awarded: 4
Maximum Credit(s) Awarded: 4

This course provides an introduction to art of the Western World, with emphasis on ways that art and architecture is related to the historical, social, and cultural contexts in which it was created. We consider such questions as: How do architectural and figural traditions established in ancient near Eastern, Egyptian, Aegean, and Roman cultures inform the development of the arts of the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-Classical, Romanticist, and Realist eras in Western Europe? What role does the patron and audience play in the stylistic developments initiated in these various cultures? Readings, class discussion, group inquiry projects, and other written and oral assignments will emphasize the development of reflective, creative, and critical approaches to the study of these visual arts traditions.

Prerequisite(s): None.
