The period from 1870 to 1900 is often perceived as a period of peace and stability- the lull preceding the stormy 20th century. However, dramatic changes were taking place in art (and in the western world) during this complex and controversial time. We will closely examine the works of many artists of this period, including such diverse artists as Claude Monet, Edvard Munch, Odilon Redon, Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel. We'll discuss various artistic styles, including, among others, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Symbolism, Expressionism, and the art of the Pre-Raphaelites and Art Nouveau. This was a rich, complex period, and understanding these various movements in art helps us better understand our own times.
