ARTH 1000 - Art History Survey I: Prehistory 14th Century Common Era

Hours: 4
Before human beings wrote anything, they were painting, drawing, sculpting, and building works of art. In this course we consider what this means for the nature of human existence as we examine art produced between roughly 30,000 bce and 1400 ce in various locations and cultures around the world. What does art-making contribute to human lives and our search for meaning and understanding? Is it different now than in ancient history? We explore these questions by studying art from the ancient through medieval periods and by looking at our own culture’s continued fascination with humankind’s distant past.
