ART History and Criticism

Courses on special topics, frequently by visiting faculty, which cannot be offered on a continuing basis. Consult art history office for subjects offered.

Class description

This course will introduce and explore the interface of modernity and realism through images of modern urban people and places, with special attention paid to women in society in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Paris, London, New York, and Edo. By focusing on scenes of public leisure, popular entertainment, and daily life we will address behaviors and deportment of the individual figures (performers, audience, passers-by, etc.) with respect to social class, gender issues, and other major descriptors to uncover the changing historical and social components revealed and how these influenced or differed from one another within the realm of nineteenth-century Paris, and London and New York in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
