This course focuses entirely on the human figure as subject. Along with working from the model in class there will be visits to museums and sculptural sites introducing students to the figurative tradition in Rome: artwork ranging from ancient Greek and Roman carvings to Baroque figures in movement that characterize the cityscape. While the course is designed to help the student develop an understanding of the artistic representation of the human figure in historic and aesthetic terms, its ultimate goal is to have each student develop a personal interpretation of figuration as it relates to contemporary culture.
Prior to Fall 2019, this course was Painting, Drawing and Sculpture 2633.
