AH 352 - Transatlantic Exchanges: Modernist Art in Europe and America

(3.00 cr.)

What is/was modernism in art? This course explores the emergence of modern art in Europe and America from the 1860s to the 1960s-chronological parameters that coincide with the emergence of a self-conscious, antitraditionalist aesthetic on the part of some artists (notably Edouard Manet in France in the 1860s) and the post-World War II globalization of Western art that produced an international modernism with its commercial roots in New York City (in the works of abstract expressionist and pop artists such as Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol).
