ART 277 - Rococo to Revolution: The Art of 18th-Century Europe (3 Cr.)


Art in the Age of Reason was more than a delicate continuation of the 17th-century Baroque. It encompassed a wide variety of approaches, including the elegant and sometimes-decadent rococo, the middle-class reaction this rococo produced, and the beginnings of a more sober neoclassicism. This course explores 18th-century European art and architecture in their social, political, and literary contexts from the late reign of Louis XIV to the French Revolution, including works from England, Germany, Italy, and France. Prerequisite: ART 103  or permission of instructor. Offered variable years. Oettinger.
