Course Description

This Art History module provides an opportunity to explore the power of art to communicate strong messages, be they messages of horror, disgust, belonging, order, humour, faith, hope or love. A series of case studies will focus on a selection of well-known artworks from the 18th century to the present. The study of Psychology will be central to these investigations enabling a greater understanding of how images communicate and effect individual, and group, responses. The importance of an artist’s psychological perspective will also be explored as will the collective power of regimes and governments to appropriate art for propaganda. By emotively engaging with particular artworks through detailed, informed, historical enquiry and discussion, it is hoped that students will be able to re-imagine the psychological force of these artworks in their time and thereby truly appreciate their significance. Students will also have the opportunity to explore these themes by viewing relevant examples from the School of Art collections. This is a face-to-face delivery with additional support on Blackboard – our Virtual Learning platform.
