Description: Several influences reenergized the art scene in the late 1970s. Among the most significant were a new presence of European art and a new generation of American artists, accompanied by a return to figurative painting, the growth of the Feminist art scene, and new tendencies in abstraction. This course examines the artists, forms, and terms that have emerged since Documenta VII, held in Kassell, Germany in 1982. Among the many artists covered are Baselitz, Beuys, Chia, Clemence, Cucchi, Fischl, Lucian, Freud, Gilbert and George, Kiefer, Longe, Marianni, Richter, Salle, Schnabel, and Sultan.
