△ ART 440 - Realism in Modern and Contemporary Art

(3 S.H.)

An examination of artists who chose to paint or sculpt naturalistic, recognizable images during a time when non-representation had become established and, in some cases, dominant. Topics will include the socially radical realism of Gustave Courbet, the classicizing impulse of Pablo Picasso, the popularizing art of Norman Rockwell, and the social and gender critique of Jenny Saville. Classes will consist of primary source readings, critical discussions, independent research, a paper, a presentation, and when possible, viewing of actual works of art. Prerequisites: ART 222 - Survey of Modern Art . Grade only.
