Art History

ARHI 1100 L21 - Introduction to Art History: World Art
Session II, July 6 - August 5, 2021
Lincoln Center, Hybrid: TWTh, 9 a.m.-Noon

This course is an introduction to the study of art history, approached from a global perspective. Because most human societies have created art, this course looks at works created in Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Africa. And since art objects can, and do, move across cultural boundaries, it also looks at the cross-cultural transmission of artworks. Over the course, you'll learn about how peoples across space and time created works of art and architecture in response to social crisis, as an aid to or container of ritual, and to express norms and ideals of gender. You'll come to understand how and why abstraction and naturalism emerged at different times and places.
