Topics in Art History and Visual Culture II (AHV1009)

15 credits

This module offers students a first opportunity for detailed study of a major topic in art history and visual culture through a contextual examination of selected movements, periods or themes, dating from the Renaissance to the present day. The subject of the module will vary from year to year, and might include art and architecture in Renaissance Italy, French genre painting, landscape and art, or modernism in Europe. The course introduces you to the sustained application and analysis of visual objects, and you will be encouraged to engage closely with individual works and the debates that are assembled around these.
