Introduction to American Art

An introduction to American art and architecture from the colonial period through mid twentieth century, this course considers the role that visual culture has played in the formation of national identity. Students will examine individual case studies to understand how artists negotiated the rise of urban culture, war, industrial prosperity, and the changing politics of race and gender.
