HUMA UN1121 Masterpieces of Western Art, or “Art Humanities’’, has been a degree requirement for all College students and an integral part of the Core Curriculum since 1947. It teaches students how to look at, think about, and engage in critical discussion of the visual arts. It is not a historical survey, but an analytical study of a limited number of monuments and artists. The course focuses on the formal structure of works of architecture, sculpture, painting, and other media, as well as the historical contexts in which these works were made and understood. Among the topics included in the syllabus are the Parthenon, Amiens Cathedral, and works by Raphael, Michelangelo, Bruegel, Bernini, Rembrandt, Goya, Monet, Picasso, Wright, Le Corbusier, Pollock, and Warhol. In addition to discussion-based class meetings, all sections of Art Humanities make extensive use of the vast resources of New York City through field trips to museums, buildings, and monuments. A sophisticated website is an integral part of the course and can be viewed at http://learn.columbia.edu/mc/arthum/index.html.
