Course DescriptionIn 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. This course looks at how French art develops from the Baroque under Louis XIV, through the Neoclassicism of Enlightenment and Revolution, to Romanticism emerging at the onset of the 19th century.
