The Slide Lists

You will receive a list of works of art to be shown in each class. These will then be posted here, by date. I am going to try to link some of them to images on the Web. However, the book is extremely well-illustrated and there are also links to various works of art on the Schedule page. Figure numbers will not be listed. Please note: these lists may be posted some days after the lecture reflected here. These lists are not replacements for attendance.

Slide Lists for January 12 to February 2
