Description: Survey the most significant developments in
painting, sculpture and architecture in Europe from the French
Revolution in 1889 to the World's Fair of 1900. We'll cover all
corners of Europe - from Norway to Italy and France to Russia.
We will examine the cultural and historical contexts in which
these works were produced: colonialism, Napoleonic wars,
industrialization and urbanization, rising nationalism, changing
political and social structures, in order to interpret their
meanings for contemporary audiences and to understand what they
can tell us about the past.
