Course Description: 

This course will examine a range of different models of abstract painting and sculpture as they appear throughout the twentieth century. Looking closely at the historical contexts that gave rise to abstraction particular attention will be paid to how apparently similar forms of abstraction can denote very different kinds of meaning. Graduate students will be expected to complete all the requirements of the class in addition to writing a substantial research paper due at the end of the semester.
