Fall 2015 Credit Courses: Art History

Picasso: The Man, His Art, and His Critics
Deified, demonized, or mythologized, Pablo Picasso remained indisputably the consummate artist of the 20th century. As a painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, and set designer, Picasso absorbed techniques and traditions culled from various Western and non-Western art sources. Students study his numerous styles, from his early academic exercises through the Blue Period, Rose Period, African Period, Cubism, and Surrealism, and his influence on other artists.

hybrid courses iconArt of the ’80s, ’90s, and 21st Century
A retrospective and prospective point of view is used to analyze contemporary art, beginning with the many coexisting styles and schools of the pluralistic 1970s, progressing to the powerful neo-expressionist images of the 1980s, and then considering the globalism of the 1990s. Discussions also contemplate the increasingly provocative content of much recent art and the 21st-century fusion of existing styles.
Note: This course is a hybrid course (60 percent online and 40 percent in person). Classes meet on Sept. 1 and 15, Oct. 13, Nov. 3 and 24, and Dec. 15. Please visit www.purchase.edu/online for details.
