ARTH 225 - (CA,D,W) Art of the Twentieth Century
(Formerly ARTH 305)
Beginning with pre- World War I works by Matisse and Picasso, this course surveys the painting, sculpture, architecture and photography of the period known as modernism, ending with an exploration of the contemporary phenomenon of postmodernism. Through examination of both artworks and texts by artists and critics, considerations of style and technique will be integrated with an analysis of historical context. A field trip to museums and galleries in New York City is included.
