History of Art I
Art history, a broad intellectual discipline, is central to the humanities. This introductory survey course will examine, analyze, and evaluate the major time periods, movements, and trends in the visual arts (primarily painting, sculpture, and architecture) of both western and nonwestern civilizations from prehistory through the Late Medieval period. In addition to the stylistic and structural components of art, students will study, through lectures and class discussion, historical, social, religious, political, technological, philosophical, and gender issues integral and related to the production and development of art.
