ARHS 3351 - British Art and Architecture: The Making of Modern Britain


Credits: 3

Surveys the history of art and architecture in Britain and Ireland, with a focus on the modern era roughly between the coronations of Henry VIII in 1503 and Elizabeth II in 1953. Includes a brief study of ancient Roman, Celtic, Viking, and Norman presence on the isles. Examines landscape traditions, portraiture, genre painting, history painting, the conversation piece, caricature and satire, and architecture and the built environment, with each situated within major developments in the nation’s dynastic, political, and social history. The course is thematically focused on the question of how geography, ethnicity, and history have interacted over centuries in the production of concepts of national identity and national styles. Investigates strategies of place-making and space-taking in art and architecture as a form of cultural nation-building.
