Cupid’s fancy is only varnish deep, coming Spring 2015

What are those flowers, pearls and places of delight all about? What set of ideals really run through the art of the 18th century? Enlightenment? This innovative art history course takes on the lineage of sources beneath the Late Baroque and/or Rococo Painting into the shades of which we see in the present. The units are organized according to chronology, geography, philosophy and theme, with special attention given to the main centers of production. 

TR 1:30-2:50, no prerequisites; recommended for both art history and painting students.
