Global Influence/European Art

Early Modern Europe's Global Artistic Interactions
In this course we will examine Early Modern European art through a global perspective. We will investigate the artistic exchanges between Northern, Southern, and Eastern Europe as well as Europe's increasing interaction with the rest of the world during the Age of Exploration. By examining primary sources such as travel accounts, we will also explore the Europeans perception of the so-called Others, including Africans, Muslims, Indians, and Asians, was manifested in the visual arts. We will also examine the artistic repercussions between Europe and beyond as consequences of trade and missionary activities. 3 hrs. lect/disc.
