AHT 4120 - Art in the Age of Revolution


The eighteenth-century French philosophers Voltaire, Montesquieu, Diderot and Rousseau promoted human rights, freedom, and the dissemination of knowledge. From Watteau’s elegant fetes galantes to Fragonard’s secluded gardens, aristocrats were depicted in pursuit of personal happiness and fulfillment. Women artists like Elisabeth Vig-Lebrun and Adae Labille-Guiard navigated many challenges to achieve status equal to that of their male colleagues. David, Goya, Gicault, Delacroix, Courbet, and others engaged in the politics of their times, critiquing oppressive regimes and advocating for liberty in an age of revolution.
