HIS 244 - Collecting and History of the Museum (3 Cr.)

(ART 244 )
Examines premodern patterns of European arts patronage, collecting, and display that influenced the organization and form of the modern museum. Based on the innovations of early modern collectors, states organized national museums or sponsored the institutionalization of prominent private collections, which students examine through a number of case studies supported by visits to area museums. (This course cannot be used to fulfill a 200-level art history requirement for the art major.) Variable semesters. Beachy.
