This course surveys the major artists and artistic movements from the mid-19th century to the present. Cultural production is considered in relation to historical events and social, political and economic issues. Although the framework of the course is chronological, the focus is thematic; we will examine the meaning of such concepts as modernism, the avant-garde, formalism, aestheticism and postmodernism.
