Art of the French Revolution: Baroque to Romanticism

GENINT 711.261

Osher (50+). In this course, we explore the art of 17th and 18th century France.


About this course:

In late 17th century and 18th century France, art was used as a powerful tool by the ruling class and others seeking power and change. Through beauty and propaganda, art was used to present power, sway beliefs, extol virtue, and make social commentary. In this course, we look at how French art developed from the Baroque under Louis XIV through Neoclassicism of the Enlightenment and the French Revolution, and to Romanticism emerging at the onset of the 19th century.  This course will be recorded. Students will have access to videos for the duration of the course.
