Landscape and Ideology, 1450--1650
ARHA 322
Fall 2017 not offered

Landscape, as Denis Cosgrove and others have argued, is a way of seeing the world. As such, it is always a reflection of social systems and cultural practices, as well as an agent that shapes them in turn. By considering ways in which landscape was constructed and instrumentalized through a variety of artistic media--from painting, prints, and maps to villas and gardens--this seminar will consider its historical place in early modern European visual culture while engaging venues through which it continues to be discussed and theorized in the fields of art and architectural history, landscape studies, and cultural geography.
