ARTH 3560 - 19th Century Art: Variable Topics

3(3 + 0)

Prerequisite: ARTH 1700 or permission of department

This course studies art of the 19th century in a specific geographic location, or under certain social conditions, or within a specific movement, or by focusing on a single or small group of artists. The cultural contexts that informed themes, content, techniques, processes, function and display of the artwork provide fundamental interpretive frameworks. Students identify historical problems in the field of study and examine variations in scholarly interpretations of the works of art. Specific topics may broadly survey art of a region, such as French 19th century Art or focus on particular movements, such as Symbolist Art, or artists, such as Courbet and Manet. (This course may be repeated for credit under different topics for up to nine credit hours.)
