ART 362 - Seminar in Nineteenth-Century Art

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
Topic for 2021/22a: Crises of Modernity: Baudelaire and Ruskin. Charles Baudelaire and John Ruskin, the leading art critics and cultural commentators of the nineteenth century, interpreted the art and architecture of their time in terms of social crisis and disruptive transformation. This seminar explores their controversial and often divergent views on a wide range of issues: the modern metropolis and cosmopolitan culture; the rise of the art exhibition, the world fair, and the museum; the exploitation of labor and the poor in the new industrial age; and the impasse between tradition and modernity. The artistic movements they defended (romanticism, pre-raphaelitism, realism) are studied through their eyes. Brian Lukacher.

Prerequisite(s): ART 106  and ART 262  or permission of the instructor.

One 2-hour period.
