Context: Origins of Modernism 1870-1910 (V4105)
Art in Context: Origins of Modernism 1870-1910
Module details for 2011 cohort.
FHEQ Level 6
This module considers the techniques and materials of art produced during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century in addition to issues around the role of the Academic system and other institutions in artistic practice. The fundamental concern is to examine art and modernity in its context: not just the art works themselves but the construction of a cultural dismodule around art and art history.
Topics explored range from artistic identities and the art market to inter-cultural relations and critical interpretations of the subject. Movements covered may include: late Pre-Raphaelitism, Aestheticism, Realism, Impressionism, Postimpressionism, the Symbolist movement, Expressionism and Art Nouveau.
