The primary purpose of this course however is not to stress the chronological development of Modern Art by “-isms" but rather to focus on and pursue specific art-related and cultural issues that pertain to a few major works. Each lecture will focus on one key work of painting or sculpture by artists such as Manet, Monet/ Renoir, Rodin, Munch/ Van Gogh, Cezanne, Gauguin, Duchamp, Tatlin, Picasso, Matisse, Brancusi, Magritte/ Dali, Pollock and Warhol. Those works will be discussed along with comparative material to explore those specific issues that are selected for each work and to illustrate earlier and later related developments. Those selected works will be presented chronologically, but the lectures themselves will be kept fairly independent and presented as a series of visits to a museum ‘’without walls.’’ Ultimately, this course aims to help students understand modern art while developing a critical understanding of some of its many issues and aspects.
