Art History/Museum Studies: This course introduces major themes in nineteenth-century French art. Beginning with the art of the pre-Revolutionary period and ending with the Symbolism of early modernism, this course will include a discussion of the impact of the revolutions of 1789, 1830, and 1848, the Napoleonic presence abroad, the shift from history painting to scenes of everyday life, landscape painting as an autonomous art form, and the impact of the invention of photography on the arts. The course highlights French artists such as Greuze, David, Ingres, Delacroix, Corot, Courbet, Manet, and Monet by visiting the best museums and sites in Paris and its environment. We will also explore themes such as the history of collections, museum history, display, and architecture.

French: For students taking the course for FR398 credit, the site visits and lectures in English are mandatory but will be supplemented with presentations of the material and discussions in French. The designated French section will allow students to develop an awareness of French culture past and present through textbook readings and class discussions in French.
