Celtic Art: From the Iron Age to the 20th Century
This course examines the art of the Celtic world, from its shadowy origins in central Europe’s Iron Age until its reimagination in the 19th and 20th centuries under Ireland’s Celtic Revival. In between, we’ll explore the spread of the Celtic style across Europe to Asia Minor, witness its conversion to Christianity, and explore its influential legacy in early medieval Irish and British art. Come discover the rich artistic traditions of the Celts through breathtaking examples of metalwork, jewelry, enamel, sculpture, and illuminated manuscripts. Questions?
