ART HISTORY & THEORY

Art History: The Human Form from Ancient to Early Modern Era (AHIS222-36)

The human figure is the starting place of art. Its chief qualities of self-awareness and identification inspire empathy and repulsion and can evoke divinity and abjection. In the history of art, the figure appears dismembered, distorted, projected onto, and exalted. The first part of this course explores Greek Sculpture & Early Christian Art, as well as the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo periods. Foundational art history concepts such as visual analysis, historiography, and post-colonialism will be introduced. Art and artists covered include Polycleitos, ancient wall paintings and mosaics, Michelangelo, Parmagianino, Pontormo, Bernini, Gentileschi, and Rubens, to name a few! Course will consist of slide lectures, seminar discussion, presentations and written assignments. Students must have reliable access to the internet, and can expect weekly reading assignments. Suitable for beginners.
