The History of Art  ~ From the Greeks to the Present: This class offers the student the opportunity to view, experience and evaluate great works of art throughout the 5000 years of western history. We say “evaluate” since all experiences of art involve judgment. We judge the work, we choose—and in such choice we reveal ourselves. We reveal ourselves in each such act of judgement. In the Fall Quarter we will begin with the art of the Greeks and continue with that of the Romans. In the Winter Quarter, we will study the art of the Middle Ages in Italy, Spain, France, and other European countries, and we will enjoy the great age of the Renaissance: Leonardo. Michelangelo, and Raphael. . . In the Spring Quarter, we will begin at 1600, the moment of Hamlet and Galileo and Caravaggio, and move forward to our own era, the 20th-21st centuries.
