ARTH-248 German Art: Romatic to Weimar
Fall for 2017-2018
This course will explore the history of art in Germany from the late 17th-century to 1937. From the Neo-Classic philosophy of Winckelmann to the anti-modernist “Degenerate Art” exhibition of 1937, we will follow the development of art through the work of such artists as the Nazarenes, Caspar David Friedrich, Adolf von Menzel, the Bru?cke group, the Bauhaus collective, and the Dadaists, among others. We will look at the birth of 20th-century German film and theatre and will perform in class one of the Expressionist “Gas” plays. Class trips to museums will complement lectures in class.
