ARH 6422: Beginnings of Modernism. Realism to Post-Impressionism 1848-1890

Credits: 3                    Grading Scheme: Letter


This topic of this course is the history of European painting (French, actually) during the second half of the nineteenth century, considered within the social and political context provided by the Second Republic, Second Empire, the Commune and Third Republic. Major themes to be traced in lectures and readings will include: formation of the avant garde, the shifting social organization of industrial society, and changing structures of artistic personality, practice and consumption. The city of Paris will be our focus, as nearly all the artists we shall study -whether French, Dutch, or Scandinavian spent significant time there.
