“A History of European Art” is based on The Great Courses video series of the same name, offering a survey of the great monuments of European painting, sculpture, and architecture from the age of Charlemagne to the onset of World War II. Discussions will examine major works by the greatest visual artists

of a millennium of Western civilization, placing their masterpieces in the political, religious, and social context of their time. This semester sets the stage with a chronology of the course and will introduce the essential aspects

of analyzing the works. The Middle Ages bring early architectural monuments and the massive cathedrals and exquisite sculpture of the French Gothic style. Let the journey begin!
