ART 160 - Art of the West I

Cross-Listed as CLAS 160 
This course surveys the visual and material culture of Europe and the Middle East from the Ancient through the late Medieval period in the Near East, Egypt, the Aegean, Greece, Etruria, Rome, and western Europe through the Gothic period (including early Christianity, Judaism and Islam). We consider the artistic and archaeological remains from a contextual perspective in order to understand each culture’s ideologies and the diverse contexts and purposes for which art was created as well as the appropriation of these objects and images in later Western culture.  (4 Credits)
