Objectives
The course presents the most successful descriptive models and interpretation of art works from the nineteenth century to our own times, in Europe and the United States. The aim is to provide the knowledge and tools of specialist understanding to investigate the cultural directions of the history of art, from its institutionalization as an independent discipline through to the complex and lively debate around its disciplinary status in the twenty-first century.
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
Starting from an analysis of the interpretative models underpinning history of art from the nineteenth century up to today, students will acquire the specialist knowledge and tools of understanding to reconstruct faithfully the fundamental stages of the history of art, the historical and cultural context which determined them and, more in general, the role played by the history of art in the debate surrounding the heritage and the political and cultural identity of individuals, groups and nations.
APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
With the knowledge and specialist analytical tools acquired, students will be able to organize, in a complex historical, cultural and ideological perspective, content and information concerning the description and interpretation of works of art, showing mature judgment, awareness and appropriate language.
