On the Course: This is a one semester, upper division survey of major monuments and trends in the history of art from about 1860 to about 2010, or from Impressionism to as close to today as we can get. Students who attend lectures and study faithfully will achieve a sufficient knowledge of the art of this period to pursue advanced coursework in these areas. We will give equal attention to painting, sculpture, and architecture.

REQUIRED Text: H. H.Arnason and Peter Kalb. History of Modern Art, New York, 2003. Note that copies of this and some helpful related titles are on permanent reserve in the library.
