Themes in Art and Culture I HAD-111
This course is the first in a required two-semester sequence. It covers the history of art and architecture in Non-Western cultures and in the West from Paleolithic to the Early Renaissance. Works of art are studied in their social, political and economic contexts along with considerations about patronage and stylistic influences. The three-hour sessions will be organized into two hours of lecture and an hour of group discussion on assigned readings or special topics.
