Arts Comparison: East/West

Arts in Comparison: East/West
In this course we will compare and contrast specific works of Asian and European art to explore the historical, religious, and social underpinnings of these respective artistic traditions. Artistic exchanges between East and West, from antiquity to the present, will also be discussed in order to understand how the varying traditions encountered, responded to one another, and produced new forms of art. Topics will include images of Christ and the Buddha, paradise and hell, landscape paintings, gardens, Orientalism and Japonisme, and Gothic Lolita fashion. 3 hrs. lect/disc.
