Fine Arts | Art Appreciation
H100 | 2078 | Davezac


This course will introduce the non-specialist to the world of
art.  Its emphasis will be on how to see and understand works of
art within the context of the periods which produced them.
It will ask questions about the role art has played in given
cultures; who its sponsors were; by what standards it was judged;
what the role and status of the artist was, and the techniques
available in a given period.  Students will learn a new visual
vocabulary which will enable them to see and enjoy a variety of
different styles, and to become familiar with the terminology
used in speaking about art.

Registration and attendance in one discussion section is
required.
