ART HISTORY: ENVIRONMENTS IN ART HISTORY

January 7, 2019 @ 1:00 pm

$200 – $220

ENVIRONMENTS IN ART HISTORY
Chris Fasolino
This course will explore how artists throughout history have drawn inspiration from natural environments. It will also explore the kind of environments that artists have designed themselves, from classical villas to Chinese pavilions to Monet’s gardens at Giverny. We will begin with the archaeological sites and camel caravans of ancient Mesopotamia. An exploration of classical sites like Pompeii will be followed by the mysterious landscapes of Italian Renaissance masters like Leonardo da Vinci. After a brief look at environments in East Asian art, we will view artifacts and ruins from Amazon rain forest and the Andes Mountains, learning about the Inca Empire, as well as the Canari and other South American peoples. The use of art to re-imagine historical environments will also be considered, including a look at how adventurous painters of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries sought to convey the epic sweep of history.
