AHST 209 European Art Since 1945

Division of Liberal Arts

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Art since World War II has been dominated by the New York market and by the issue of abstraction; in Europe, however, artists continued to use the human figure as a vehicle for social and ethical concerns, and, more recently, their engagement has become a model for younger artists in both Europe and America. The course will look at crafts and book arts as well as fine arts; it will also make use of plays and films.
