Visual Creativity & Meaning

GDD 220
Description: Continuing where Art History (ART-120) left off, this course follows the progression of aesthetic styles from the Renaissance to the pre-digital mid-twentieth century. Blurring the boundary between 'fine art' and the 'applied' or 'decorative arts', and against the backdrop of an emerging capital-based economy and industrialization, we trace how artists, architects, and designers created visual work in response to their era. You will discover the bedrock late-nineteenth- and early twentieth-century art and design movements so central to design as we see it today.
