Course Description:

On February 17, 1913, an art exhibition opened in New York City that shocked the country, changed our perception of beauty, and profoundly affected artists and collectors. The 1913 International Exhibition of Modern Art (which came to be known as the Armory Show) marked the dawn of Modernism in American Art and influenced all that was to follow.

This course will explore the radical and exciting changes that occurred as American artists, accustomed to realistic art, were introduced to the experimental styles of the European avant-garde, including Fauvism, Cubism, Futurism, and Precisionism. We'll draw upon works of art in the collections of some of the Bay Area's world-class museums as we explore the impact of Modernism in American Art.
