HUM 5120 Decadence to Revolution

This interdisciplinary seminar begins in the delicate salons of beautifully clad, influential French women and ends with the horror of the Terror. We focus on the visual images of the 18th century, especially those produced in France as well as the satirical graphics of Hogarth in England and the delightful 'vedute' paintings of Venice which depict the last vestiges of the vanishing Republic.
