ARTH 2200 - History of Women Artists: Renaissance to 21st Century

Credits: 3

[Previously offered as: AHST 203] The first part of the course focuses on the little-known history of professional women artists who began to emerge in the Renaissance era and continued to rise to prominence in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. The second half of the course consists of in-depth studies of women artists whose visions have significantly helped to shape the direction of art in the 20th century and into the 21st. A series of visiting-artist presentations will also be part of a diverse curriculum comprising analysis of various readings about women artists, visual material, Web site investigations of contemporary projects and class discussions of the evolving position of women within the historical continuum of art.

May be taken twice for degree or certificate credit.
