Arts of East Asia: From Yangshao Spirals to Erotic Woodblock Prints|
The course will introduce students to the visual arts of China, Japan, and Korea, focusing on painting, sculpture, and the decorative arts from the Neolithic era through the early modern period. Our primary method of investigation will be formal analysis, a fundamental analytical tool in art history, but we will also consider issues of cultural context, including politics, gender, philosophy, and religion.
