ARTH 348     Reframing Architecture and the Decorative Arts: Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco  (4)

A survey of three major modern art movements in Europe and the United States, in which architecture and the decorative arts became inseparable: Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco. This course explores the concept of decoration through stylistic, aesthetic, technological, and sociocultural readings of the works associated with those movements. Related art and architectural movements such as Victorian Gothic, American Renaissance, Aestheticism, De Stijl, Purism, and Bauhaus are discussed for contextualization of art works in question. Prerequisite: ARTH 104 or HUMN 202.
