ART 316 - History of Modernism

5 credit hours
This course examines developments in visual art from the “painting of modern life” of Edouard Manet in the 1860s through Surrealist explorations of the unconscious in the 1930s. Particular attention is paid to examining competing definitions of modernism, both during the period under examination and in subsequent writing about it, and to examining modernism in visual art within the context of the sweeping cultural, social, and political changes that occurred during these decades. Prerequisite: ART 212.
