19th Century Art & Architecture

This course will investigate the art of the 19th century ¿ a period of profound political and social transformation ¿ as it developed in Europe and America. As with every historical period, the 19th century felt a need to create narratives that would help to explain and rationalize its own contemporary history. The dramatic break with the past that occurred in this period encouraged just such mythic creations, helping to shape what we recognize today as the modern world.
