An Introduction to the History of Art: Meanings in the Visual Arts

Back to "Fall 2017" courses

Introduction to the history of art and to the discipline of art history. Not a comprehensive survey but a sampling of arts — painting, sculpture, architecture, photography and prints — and artistic practices from diverse historical periods, regions, and cultures. The course balances consideration of historical developments with attention to individual works of art. Faculty members of the Department of Art and Archaeology lecture in their fields of expertise; all precepts are held in the Princeton University Art Museum to facilitate direct engagement with works of art.
