HUM-104 Introduction to the Humanities IV: Fine Arts and Architecture
This course surveys the great works of Western painting, sculpture and architecture from 800 A.D. to the mid-twentieth century. These works are examined within the political, religious and social context of their time, allowing students to understand both why the artwork was created by the artist and how it was at the same time a response to a particular set of historical circumstances. Students will emerge from the course with a better grasp of how to view art with both understanding and enjoyment. Course content is drawn from the Teaching Company's "A History of European Art" by Professor William Kloss.
