History of Art
SCQF Level 8 (Year 1 Undergraduate)
Under the collective title Art at the Crossroads of World Cultures (300-1300), the lectures in semester 1 introduce you to art in Rome, Byzantium, the great courts of Europe, China and the Islamic world during the millennium that spanned the broad period 300-1300. By combining a far-reaching cultural scope with this long time span, you will gain a broad perspective on extraordinary artistic revolutions and expressions of human creativity. The art of the period will be analysed in terms of iconography, materials, practices of patronage and artistic interactions.
