What Is American in American Art, 1750-1880
A practical and historical survey of American art from 1750 to 1880 will be discussed in this course. Sessions will be held in the classroom, galleries, and a museum, where the class will be given “hands-on” experience in examining paintings, drawings, and sculpture. The uniqueness of the American market and the ways that values are established will be addressed. Among the movements to be discussed include 18th- and 19th-century portraiture, 19th-century romanticism, and the Hudson River School.
