Art History III: Modern Art

by Maggie Hobson-Baker

Title Details

As Professor Maggie Hobson-Baker explains in her first lecture to this free course on Modern Art, there is much dispute on the origins and definition of “modern”, and fittingly, this somewhat contentious dialogue is indicative of the artwork itself. What seems beyond argument is that formative modern art movements are linked to the industrial revolution, where new methods of mass production and world-changing technological advancements led to modes of creative expression that were heretofore impossible. What’s more, the subject of art strayed away from the domain of the upper crust and gave way to an expressive, sometimes isolated focus on “mundane” realities of every-day life. Using precisely chosen video examples of the artwork in question, Hobson-Baker carefully introduces students to the primary works in a given movement, and provides informative detail every step of the way on how a particular piece fits into the larger context of the modern era.
