ART 160 - Art of the West I

Cross-Listed as CLAS 260  


​This course surveys the visual and material culture of Europe, the Middle East and the broader Mediterranean world from prehistory through the late Medieval period, including early Christian, Jewish and Islamic cultures. We consider the artistic and archaeological remains from the Near East, Egypt, the Aegean, Greece, Etruria, Rome, and western Europe from a contextual perspective in order to understand each culture’s ideologies, and the diverse social and artistic purposes for which art and architecture was created and used.

  Every fall. (4 Credits)
