The course introduces students to French art of the period between 1750 and 1860. These years saw the emergence of three important artistic currents: Neo-Classicism, Romanticism and Realism. Detailed pictorial analysis of works by Boucher, Fragonard, Chardin, David and his school, Gericault, Ingres, Delacroix, Corot, Millet and Courbet, will be supplemented by discussions on the changing role of the artist in the society of this period. The course includes a visit to the museum of Strasbourg and a three-day trip to Paris. A course-related fee will be billed from Syracuse (Fall 2017 fee = $325).
For Syracuse University students, this course satisfies a Liberal Arts Core requirement for humanities.
