ARTH 100: Introduction to Art History back to courses index
Joe Lucchesi and Cristin Cash
This course covers the history of art and architecture produced by cultures around the world from prehistory to the present. We will look at works of architecture, sculpture, 2D media (painting, prints, and photography) and 4D or time-based art (performance, video, digital) both in the process of their creation and meaning in cultural context. Using case studies from different cultures and time periods, the course is subdivided to explore some of the general themes that often provide meaning to artistic expression including: space/place, the body, institutional and private patronage and self-expression. By the end of the course you should have the skills necessary to analyze works of art and architecture based on an understanding of visual, iconographic and contextual analysis, comparative study, and the interpretation of primary documents and secondary sources.
No prerequisite. This course satisfies the Core Curriculum requirement in Humanistic Foundations.
