|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject introduces students to the principal artists and art theorists in Europe from the beginnings of Romanticism early in the 19th century to Post-Impressionism at the end of the century. Students will be exposed to a range of different models for understanding the human figure and the countryside as subjects for painting, while tracing the progressive shift away from classical ideals of figurative painting and landscape painting in the radical innovations of Realism, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. A particular focus of the subject will be the impact on art of political, social and technological change, such as the rise of the middle class, the development of new forms of transport, and the advent of leisure tourism. These will be analysed in the light of recent scholarship on the relationship between social class, sexual identity and the representation of landscape and the human body.
