ARHT 335 - 19TH CENTURY ART AND CULTURE
This course explores 19th century art and the emergence of modern visual culture by mapping the major elements which led to the construction of 20th century spectacular society. It follows the different artistic shifts in 19th century art from classicism to romanticism to realism to symbolism and abstraction. It also examines the transformation of traditional genres, in particular history and landscape painting, in light of historical and political transformations within Europe and America. Alongside an analysis of changing artistic forms, this course links changes in representation to the development of visual practices and technological apparatuses such as the panorama, photography and film. By juxtaposing discussions of specific art works and an analysis of new visual and cultural apparatuses for the display of both art (museums) and commodities (world exhibitions), this course provides a comprehensive account of the modernization of perception and viewers in the 19th century.
