LAPR 855 - Style in Art


A seminar exploring the question of style in the literary, visual, and performing arts as well as in craft and applied arts (including film, industrial design, and the fashion industry). We consider theories about organicism and periodicity in style, as they relate to tradition, trends, social and economic conditions, and evolving cultural norms. Themes include: ateliers and authorship; historic “revivals,” changing standards of beauty and form; and stylistic phases in the careers of major writers, artists, and composers. The aim of the course is to develop a practical, descriptive vocabulary for the analysis of artistic style. Formerly HU 395
