AHY 2240 - A History of Modern Art

Credits: 4.0
This course is an overview of Modern Art from the mid-19th century through the 20th century in Western Europe, Eastern Europe and America. In weekly lectures and discussions we will examine major artistic movements such as Impressionism, Expressionism, the Russian Avant-Garde, Cubism, Dada, Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism among others. Taking a social art historical approach, throughout the course, we will consider artists and artworks within both their social, economic and political contexts and their relationships with cultural formations such as modernism, modernity and the avant-garde. We will focus on modern innovations in painting, sculpture and architecture in the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as address developments after War World II, when changing ideas, global cultural shifts and the emergence of new artistic directions have provoked and challenged the redefinition of Western oriented art and culture.
