ART 216  History of Art and Architecture 1 - Cave to Revolution

The reasons for the beginnings of art are unknown, but human beings were compelled to paint the walls of caves 30,000 years ago. This course will be a whirlwind tour from prehistoric art to neolithic architecture, through the splendors of ancient Egypt, Ethiopia, Greece and Rome to the modest art of manuscripts in the Middle Ages and the architectural glory of Gothic cathedrals in the fourteenth century. Then the Renaissance of the fifteenth century was a rebirth of learning and culture in Europe. We will follow European art from the Renaissance through Mannerism, the Baroque, Art Deco, neo-Classicism, to the Age of Enlightenment that produced revolutions in the United States and France Prerequisites: WR 221  or equivalent recommended.  4 crs.
