This course will consider the history of art history, examining how approaches to understanding and interpreting art have evolved over time. Today art historians may choose from a variety of research methods such as iconography, formalism, social history, biography, as well as feminist, Marxist, and post-modern theories. This course will examine the historical context in which these options emerged as well as the implications of adopting a particular approach. The subject of this course is thus art history itself rather than a specific movement or era.
