ARTS 3349 Medieval Art

A survey of art created between approximately 300 and 1400. Typically characterized as the “age of faith” and “the Dark Ages,” medieval European society was more complex, nuanced, and diverse than the simplified impressions fostered by succeeding centuries. This course will examine the styles, trends, and subjects created by the many cultures that occupied medieval Europe. Students will also explore the transmission of artistic developments throughout Europe and beyond. May not be repeated for credit.
