Michelangelo transforming the Sistine Chapel, Gustave Eiffel designing a tower, Keith Haring painting the Berlin Wall - all iconic moments of art history. When we study these works, we understand better the religious, social, and economic factors that gave them form. This course focuses on the art produced in Rome during the 16th and 17th centuries, in Parish during the 18th and 19th centuries, and in Berlin during the 20th and 21st centuries.
By investigating the painting, sculpture, and architecture from these European capitals, we will learn about art history, urban planning, and history - and become more savvy tourists and world citizens!
