Purpose of the Course: This is a lower-division survey of major monuments and trends in the history of painting, sculpture, and architecture covering the period from Late Antiquity to the art of the late Gothic periods. Students who attend lectures and study faithfully will achieve a sufficient knowledge of the art of these periods to pursue more advanced coursework in these areas. They will also have the background necessary to continue on to the next survey course in this series.

REQUIRED Text: Gardner's Art Through the Ages, 11th ed,, 2001. Edited by Kleiner, Mamiya, and Tansey. Note that the text comes in two different publication formats: a two-volume paperback and a one-volume hardback. If you will be taking just this class, you might want to purchase vol. 1 of the paperback; if you will also take AH 205 and/or 206 you may want to build up your muscles toting around the one-volume hardback edition.
