About this Unit
This unit is designed as an introduction to Art History. It outlines some of the principal terminologies and methods employed within the discipline of art history through a chronological introduction to important periods, movements, and figures in European art from the Renaissance to the late nineteenth century. In particular, the unit encourages students to think about the practice of art history with reference to the questions asked by art historians and the interpretive techniques they employ. Theoretical and methodological aspects of the discipline are examined, while specific emphasis is given to developing skills in visual analysis and interpretation.
