Art Styles Through the Ages: Baroque Art Through the 20th Century
Develop an eye for, and an understanding of, painting, sculpture, and architecture from the baroque era through the 20th century—and build a foundation in the history of art. Study fantastic painting in 16th-century Northern Europe during the age of the Protestant Reformation, and learn of Bruegel and Bosch. Experience kingship, drama, and psychology in artwork by the baroque masters of the 17th century, and encounter Caravaggio, Rembrandt, and Vermeer. Next, study the art of two revolutions—the political and the industrial—embodied by 18th- and 19th-century neoclassicism and romanticism, and discover David and Goya. Then, learn of 19th-century impressionism and postimpressionism, and see Monet, van Gogh, Cézanne, and Munch. Finally, tackle crucial issues in the 20th century: skyscrapers, cubism, futurism, surrealism, African American art, feminist art, pop art, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Take note of Picasso, Jacob Lawrence, Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, and Maya Lin. A visit to the Museum of Modern Art is planned.
