Course Detail: O_CLSART - What is Classical in Classical Art?: A View of the Nature of Classical Art Through the Ages

Nineteenth-century art historians viewed Classical Art beginning in Greece and spreading throughout the rest of the Western World through the High Renaissance as a purely Western phenomenon. Little was said of other world cultures until the advent of 20th Century Modernism, bringing a redefinition of Classicism. This course will examine commonalities and differences of a selection of Classical Movements in Fine Arts over time involving many races, ethnicities, and religious viewpoints from across our planet, which have given shape to the arts of today, broadening previous parochial visions of art. All are welcome in this "Shared Inquiry Course."
