The third course in my exploration of Spanish Art, after Islamic Spain and the Hapsburg Golden Age, will continue to look for a particular ‘Spanishness’ in art, beginning at the end of the 18th century to the devastating Spanish Civil War and the excitement of Surrealism in response to political and social upheaval. Major artists discussed include Gaudí, Dalí, Miró and, of course, Picasso. Participation in other courses on Spanish art is not a prerequisite!

Class Format: Lecture and discussion

Readings: Readings and viewings will be assigned in class. A reading list for further study will be available.
