This course is a survey of the history, development, and evolution of painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, and related art forms of Western Europe and the United States from the mid-nineteenth century to the late-twentieth century. Artworks, art movements, and art styles are studied in relation to relevant social, political, philosophical, and technological factors, and the accelerating changes that characterize the modern era. Students will see how the aesthetic of newness, originality, anti-academicism, and radical formal invention characteristic of avant-garde modernism was rooted in the deep-seated social changes and values that defined modernity. Students will be introduced to fundamental methods of analysis that will assist them in understanding art and aesthetic human activities.
