ARTH 142 - Art and the Experience of Modernity, 1880-1940


A survey of the major movements in avant-garde art from the late-19th century to World War II in Western Europe and the United States. We will examine how the art of this period–painting, sculpture, collage, photography, architecture–engaged the modern world through strategies as varied as resistance, subversion and open embrace. The course begins with the generation of neo- and post-impressionist painters, covers the development of abstraction and concludes with the surrealist dreamscape.
