ARTH 180 - Women and Art


3 Hour(s)

This course explores ways in which women have been portrayed in art, and also provides an introduction to women artists from the ancient world to modern times. Feminist art history/feminist discourse is introduced as a way of analyzing representations of women in art, with focus on Renaissance and Baroque art, and their underlying - too often negative - assumptions. Models for this work will be provided by such classic feminist art historians as Nochlin, Munro, Garrard, Broude and Russell. The second half of the course will focus on women as producers of art and offers an empowering alternative to the too frequent neglect of women artists in modern art history.
