Art History 101 will survey art making through its historical, social, religious and political contexts in Western civilization from the Prehistoric period through the Middle Ages. Major focus will be placed on how cultural and religious values during the historical periods under study are reflected in art, and the cultural significance of the art of these periods to our considerations of art and culture today.
