AH 353 - Posters! A History of Art and Persuasion

(3.00 cr.)

Introduces students to the cultural and visual history of posters. Drawing on Baltimore's rich poster resources, students examine the poster as a key participant in both modern life and modern art. Beginning with the prehistory of the poster in the Reformation broadsheet and moving on to the posters of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, students investigate how the poster and its visual language has participated in and shaped art, history, politics, culture, and commerce.
