About Your Course

Art History: Modern & Contemporary Art

During this third class in our Art History series, you will survey the history of art from the early modern period through the 20th century (roughly 1800-2000) in Europe and the United States. You will learn about key developments of the avant-garde by introducing the aesthetic innovations of Realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Cubism, Dada, and Abstract Expressionism, among others.

Each class will combine lecture-format learning with gallery exploration. We will visit the galleries of American Art, 19th and 20th Century European Art, Modern and Contemporary Art, as well as the Cincinnati Wing. You will develop a broad understanding of the most representative artists and styles from each period, while also learning how specific objects from the museum’s collection fit into the history of art.
