Art History 102 will survey art making through its historical, religious, social and political contexts in Western civilization from the Renaissance period (c. 1400 AD) through the Modern Age. Major focus will be placed on how cultural and religious values during the historical periods under study are reflected in art, and the artistic significance of the art of these periods to our considerations of art and culture today.
