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.
For Syracuse University students, this course satisfies a Liberal Arts Core requirement for humanities.
