Monuments List

This is the list of the the works of art to be covered in this class. Please note that this is not necessarily the order in which they will be discussed in the lecture. Very likely a few will be dropped and a few may be added, especially if the class shows a particular enthusiasm for a particular subject (Palladian villas, anyone?). I will let you know in class and the Web site will be updated. At any rate, most of the art listed here is also illustrated in your textbook (Gardner's Art Through the Ages, 10th edition, 1996). A few additional ones will be posted for study either near our classroom or on the page for links.

The listings give:



place You will need to know the place--the location--of those works of art that are immovable, such as buildings (St. Peter's Basilica, Rome), frescoes (Masaccio's Holy Trinity in the church of Santa Maria Novella, Florence) or are just too big to pick up and carry away (the Baldacchino, St. Peter's)

date You will need to give a date when you write about art. For this course, you will use the conventional divisions listed below as your date. No, you don't have to worry about whether a particular painting dates to 1862 or 1873. If it's by Monet, it's Impressionist; if it's The Third Class Carriage by Daumier, it's Realism.


The and exams will consist mainly of some combination of:

I short slide identifications (1 minute each: artist, title/subject, date, location if architecture or immovable)
II short discussion questions You are asked to identify the work as above and provide other information as requested.
III Slide comparisons, in which you are shown two slides side by side and asked to write a paragraph discussing the reason for the comparison (7 minutes each).

The final exam will cover the art we have studied since the midterm. On the final you may, if you can make a case for its inclusion, refer to a work of art from the first half of the course, usually in the context of a comparison.
