AHT 305 - History of Illustration


This course examines the history of illustration with an emphasis on American influences, from its origins, through the golden age, to the present. We will explore each eras illustrators and their work, and evaluate how history of illustration is both intertwined with and separate from that of the fine arts. We will therefore study the genre as individual and cultural expression, but will also assess the influence of technology, commerce, and other historical transformations on culture and the arts. Students of this course explore how public perceptions of illustration and illustrators have changed, as we grapple with the innovations and controversies associated with the field. (3 Credits)
