3 Units - 3 hours lecture
Transfers: CSU, UC
This course is a survey of the painting, sculpture, and architecture produced in Europe and America from the French Revolution to World War II. Beginning with the neoclassical movement of the late eighteenth century, the course examines the rise of modernity and its innovative assumptions about art, aesthetics, and criticism. The course concentrates on the evolution of the modern definition of art and how changing criteria modify the value of art to society. Works of art and architecture are discussed in light of their unique cultural and historical context. NR
