AR 1110 - Introduction to Art History I

Fall and Spring semesters

These courses provide a survey of the role of art in the western tradition and of the changing meanings which art has had at different periods and for different cultures within this tradition. The courses concentrate on several periods which have been of pivotal importance in shaping this tradition and examine the relationship which art has to the cultures which produced it and to ourselves today. AR 1110 follows the course of art from prehistory through the High Medieval period. Each course has been designed as a complete unit and either or both courses may be taken in any order.
