FA364 - Art & Revolution:  Propaganda in 19th & 20th Centry Europe & America

adameveA study of visual artists' responses to some of the major revolutionary events of the last 200 years, including the French Revolution, World War I, the Nazi-Bolshevist struggles in Weimar Germany, the Spanish Civil War, and World War II. Although we will look at examples of popular art--posters propaganda films, and so forth--as documents of the social upheavals that inspired them, we will chiefly concern ourselves with the paintings, drawings, and graphic works of such important "fine" artists as David, Goya, Delacroix, Daumier, Grosz, and Kollwitz.
