This subject introduces students to the principal artists and art theorists in Europe, from romanticism in the 19th century, to the avant-gardes of the early 20th century. Students will be exposed to a range of different models for understanding the revolutionary developments taking place in painting and sculpture during this period, tracing the progressive shift away from traditional and classical ideals in the radical innovations introduced by modern artists in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The work of artists from among several different countries in Europe, such as England, France, Germany and Italy, will be investigated. 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 changes 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.
