ARTH 140 - Modern Art
This course provides a broad survey of modern European and American art, with a focus on the development of abstraction.  We will examine the major art movements of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, while remaining ever attentive to the question of what is modern art. Artistic developments will be understand in relation to historical factors, such as the impact of revolution and war, the changing status of women, and the rise of the modern metropolis. Together we will read seminal art theoretical texts which grapple with the nature of modernity, the role of the arts in the modern period, and the rise of the modern art museum.
