ARHT2618 - French Art, Salon to Post-Impressionism

Semester 1, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Roger Harold Benjamin


This course treats a familiar area of French Art in terms of the cultural structures that allowed academic art, Realism, Impressionism, and Post-Impressionism to emerge. Mainstream art will be studied alongside emerging avant-garde spaces. The language of art criticism will provide a key to the politics of the painted surface and ethics of the female nude. Other topics for study will include nationalism, exoticism, and peripheral as opposed to metropolitan modernism.
