HST 1106   Art History I   Credits: 3

In this course, students will explore the range of visual art from pre-historic times to the present. All artists must develop an awareness of the major aesthetic achievements of the past in order to situate their own and others' work in the historic continuum. Thus, with a particular concentration on the achievements of Western visual art, this course will focus on the major movements in art, their chronology, and their influence on succeeding generations of artists.
