Looking for a Block 8 course?

AH 200 – Topics in Art History: Turn of the Century Art of London, Paris & Vienna

Artistic and related intellectual, social and cultural developments in three important capitals of Europe circa 1880-1910. We will investigate the impact on art of this age of uncertainty and transition from traditional to modernist points of view, following themes of degeneration and decadence, anxiety and the inner life, and the preoccupation with sexuality, especially androgyny and the fatal woman. The class will examine a number of artists in depth, including Toulouse-Lautrec and Redon in Paris; Klimt and Schiele in Vienna; Burne-Jones and Beardsley in London. We will consider their work in relation to Freud, Schopenhauer, and Oscar Wilde, among others, as well as their repudiation of Victorian morals.
