AH 320 - 19th Century Art: Impressionism and Post-Impressionism

This course provides an in-depth study and pictorial survey of Impressionism, its origins and its legacy presented from a general overview of the evolution of painting, with a focus on key elements in the Impressionist movement such as composition, color and style; a study of the aesthetic evolution of Impressionism through the works of the movement's forerunners, artists who constitute the core group and their immediate descendants; and a study of the Impressionist movement's effects on 20th century art and the ways in which today's artists reaffirm the legacy by using elements that gave the movement its vitality and energy.

Students will study works from the following artists: Courbet, Millet, Turner, Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Seurat, Cezanne, and Gauguin. The course is made up of lectures illustrated by art works and group discussion. Visits will be made to local museums such as the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, and Musée Rodin to study directly on the original art works.
