3 credits
Greta Berman

Prerequisite: LARTS 112  This class is a survey of the arts of Europe and the United States from the beginning of the 20th century to today, starting with the transition from the late 19th century into the 20th. We begin with an examination of Fauvism and German Expressionism, continuing through Cubism, Futurism, Dada and Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, and movements of the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s. Artists include Matisse, Klee, Kandinsky, Picasso, Dali, Pollock, Warhol, and many others. Class time will be spent discussing and viewing slides, videotapes, and live performances, where possible. Students will be encouraged to go to museums and galleries, as well as to read current criticism.
