Fine Arts | Introduction to Art History and Visual Culture
H100 | 7221 | Katie Larson


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 give 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.
