Twelve Objects: An Introduction to Art History (AH2108.01)

Zirwat Chowdhury

This part-lecture, part-discussion course offers a survey of the history of art through close study of twelve objects selected from a wide chronological and geographical breadth. Each object will serve as notable example of a canonical artistic movement, as well as illustrate a key art historical term. The course will offer students an overview of important movements, themes, and ideas within the history of art, as well as help them build a glossary of critical aesthetic and art historical terms. Each week, readings will comprise a pairing of a survey text and a theoretical and/or art historical essay.
