ARTH 300 - French Art and Its Others (1830-1930)


This seminar examines how a fascination with cultures outside of Europe motivated several artists and designers working in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century France. Modern art in France was profoundly shaped by a series of direct visual appropriations from African, Middle Eastern, and Asian artistic traditions, as well as a system of beliefs projected onto those “Other” cultures in question.
