AHT 4120 - Arts of the Enlightenment and the Age of Revolution


This course concentrates on European art from the mid-18th century to the mid- 19th century. At the heart of the course is the paradoxical relationship of Neoclassicism, Romanticism, and Realism - seemingly oppositional movements that were, nevertheless, profoundly echoic. From the aesthetic vision of Napoleons empire to the revolutionary vision of Delacroix and Daumiers politically impassioned prints, students will consider, among other things, how closely the art and politics of the age were intertwined, and to what extent the tools of propaganda may be wielded by the hands of artists. (4 Credits) Formerly AHT 412
