The Icon

Charlie Barber

Back to "Spring 2019" courses

In this class we will examine the history, function, theory and meaning of the icon. We will also examine the icon’s influence upon the discourses of Modernism. A more practical aspect of this class is that participants in the course will work with the Princeton University Art Museum’s icon collection and with its collection of icon painter’s preparatory drawings. The class will provide participants with a broad grounding in questions pertaining to the icon.
