Description: This course will consider the emergence and flourishing of Romanticism in the visual arts in Europe. We will consider artists from France, Germany and Britain, including Eugene Delacroix, J.M.W. Turner, John Constable and Caspar David Friedrich. We will combine study of paintings with readings of contemporaneous philosophers and writers, including Hegel and Byron. For each lecture, Graduate Students will be assigned additional readings. They will write an annotated bibliography of all these readings to be turned in at the end of the semester. We will meet for an additional every two or three weeks to discuss interpretive and methodological problems and ideas associated with the readings. Graduate Students will be expected to complete all the requirements of the class in addition to writing a substantial research paper due at the end of the semester. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for HART 554 if student has credit for HART 354.
