Block 4, 2017 Taught by Tomi-Ann Roberts, By application only. What does it mean to “gaze?” What can psychological theories and research about emotion expression, rooted in Darwin’s observations, tell us about what we see in works of art such as frescoes, paintings, portraits and sculpture? How do we see the faces, bodies and emotions of the genders portrayed in art? We will explore these questions in the museums, chapels, and galleries of Florence Italy. Pick up an application in Tutt Sci Bldg Room 306-D. Turn in by the end of Block 6.
