The module will provide a survey of western European art from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century. Each lecture will focus on a particular work or art, monument or movement, chosen to illustrate not only the achievement of great individual artists (including Courbet, Cassatt, Goncherova and Picasso), but also different media (painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, applied arts). Attention will also be paid to differing art-historical approaches to the art of the Modern period.
