Class Details

A semester-long, team-taught introduction to European and American art and architecture from approximately 1600 to today. This course teaches students how to analyze art as physical objects for contemplation, but also often to be worshiped, exhibited, bought and sold, held, touched, worn, and experienced. To appreciate how these works of art might have been understood by those who originally made and used them, the course sets its objects of study within a number of revealing historical contexts, from the social and the political to the philosophical and the art historical. We will also spend time with original works and familiarize ourselves with the wealth of resources in Williamstown: the Clark Art Institute, the Williams College Museum of Art, and the Chapin Rare Book Library.
