American Art in the Jazz Age

Listed in: Art and the History of Art, as ARHA-357

Moodle site: Course


Carol Troyen (Section 01)


The American avant-garde in the period between the two world wars was both revolutionary and combative, determined to forge a radical style that was in tune with European innovations yet also clearly American.  This course will explore the achievement of such painters and photographers as Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O’Keeffe, Edward Hopper, Ansel Adams, Aaron Douglas, and Stuart Davis against the background of more conservative movements of the era (e.g., American Impressionism, the colonial revival) as well as in light of the lively culture generated by bohemian writers, patrons, critics, and political activists.

Limited to 15 students.  Fall semester.  Visiting Professor Troyen.

If Overenrolled: Priority to ARHA and AMST majors, then attention to achieving a mix of majors
