Rebellion and Representation: Art in North America to 1867|
Fall 2010 not offered
In this course we shall study how certain art forms were transmitted and adapted by the Europeans engaged in the colonization of North America from the 16th to 19th centuries. In particular, we shall explore how men and women who worked in painting, sculpture, and the graphic arts responded to notions of national identity and representative governance that informed the founding of the United States, the Mexican Republic and the Dominion of Canada.
In this course students will be expected to engage in the critical analysis of works of art and literature as cultural texts, studying particular the modes and circumstanced of production and reception.
