Seminar in Western art, 15th to 18th Centuries

Lecturer: Sim Hinman WAN

9 credits

In the early-modern period, beginning in the Renaissance and continuing into the Baroque era, the visual arts of Europe were transformed by a series of aesthetic, intellectual, technological, political and economic changes. The artistic legacy of this period continues to inform the identity of ‘Western Civilisation’ and the practices and values of the art world to the present day. This course covers a selected range of key artists and topics in the period, as well as a range of historiographic and conceptual approaches by which art historians have sought to explore them.
