ART 573 - Art in the Twentieth Century, 1945 -2000

(3 credits)
This course introduces the main developments in twentieth-century European and American art from the second half of the twentieth century, while also helping students to employ strategies for analyzing and interpreting visual art and culture. Modern art has questioned and challenged Western pictorial conventions and traditions and so studying modern art requires that we interrogate the changing ways in which art is viewed and discussed. In this course, artworks will be discussed in a variety of ways including their formal and stylistic characteristics, the cultural and social conditions in which they were produced, and the meanings that have been and can be interpreted from them.
