Introduction to Modern Art History: 'Bridging the Centuries' from Manet to Picasso

This course is designed as an overview of the Modern Art History starting with the Impressionists in the 1860s who, inspired by their free-spirited experimentation practices, motivated new styles and techniques that gradually broke with traditional standards.

Based on selected artists, styles and contextualized images, this introductory course will cover some of the major art movements of the late 19th and 20th centuries providing a broad understanding of the development of modern western art during a span of 100 years. The course also introduces the influence of European modernism on other regions. Among the many favorite artists featured in this lecture series are: Manet, C├ęzanne, Van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso, Jawlensky, Rivera and many others.
