AHIS 3- SURVEY OF WESTERN ART HISTORY III SYLLABUS- Hybrid Walter Meyer, [email protected] , 310.434.8266, Office Art 216 Office Hours: Mondays 9:10-10:10am in the CMD Faculty Area Other days/times by appointment- email prof for availability This course will survey the history of artistic expression of Modern Art through the present time. We start with Impressionism (ca. 1850) and progress in loose chronological fashion. The course lectures and readings will be largely based on painting, sculpture and architecture throughout these centuries. Since the course deals as much with history as with art, we will also be exploring the different historical events, artistic media and philosophical theories that inform the artworks presented in the class. We will look at art as not only a receptor of cultural values but also a participant in the creation of culture. Goals : I believe that Art History deals as much with history as with art and I therefore explore the different historical events, cultural contexts and philosophical beliefs when artworks are presented in the class. My interest in art history stems from its ability to act as a nexus and lens through which to understand and view past and present. I look at art as not only a receptor of cultural values but also a participant in the creation of culture. Just as we can see the influence of history and culture on artworks, we must think of how art promoted values and ideas. Within

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
