ARTH 290 - Gender and the Visual Arts in Europe and Colonial Latin America, 1450-1650

FC ARHU WINT
4 credits
This course examines understandings of gender in early modern Europe and Latin America through the lens of art and material culture. We will consider not only how cultural conventions of gender limited experiences, but also how marginalized voices challenged conventions. We will explore how gender affected the artistic production of women artists such as Artemisia Gentileschi and Sofonisba Anguissola. And we will consider how women commissioned and collected works of art to construct an identity. We will also discuss how attitudes towards masculinity were shaped through the visual arts and bodily adornment. Field trip required.
Prerequisites & Notes: A 100-Level Art History course or a GSFS course is recommended but not required.
This course is cross-listed with GSFS 340
