|ARTH 2815 - Pre-Modern Japanese Art up to the Edo Period|
This course is an introductory survey to Japan's long and rich artistic traditions from the prehistoric period to the Edo period marking the end of the feudal samurai government in the late 19th century. Students explore the visual arts of Japan as a reflection of Japanese culture. Lectures focus on selected works of painting, sculpture, architecture, gardens, prints and ceramics while considering themes such as subject matter, style, patronage, and political/social changes. Lectures also address the aesthetic sensibilities, ideas, and beliefs that have developed in Japan in order to provide a glimpse into the culture within which artworks were created and appreciated by the people. Students also study some of the methods and materials used in creating Japanese art. NOTE: Field trips are mandatory for this class. Temple Japan campus only.
