History and theory of early twentieth-century modernism in the visual arts, from origins in the late nineteenth century through Surrealism. The work of artists such as Matisse, Picasso, Kandinsky, Duchamp, and Mondrian.
As a result of completing this course, students will: 1. be able to read and think critically about the theory and history of early twentieth-century modernism in the visual arts; 2. develop their abilities to articulate these new-found insights in oral and written form; 3. develop research skills and the ability to write at shorter and greater length about modern art (and by virtue of this practice, about anything); 4. attend to the importance of revision in the writing process and the finer points of style and grammar.
