And some questions/issues...

Questions

  • Are we losing some of the more creative or conceptually-oriented topics by being so object-oriented?
  • Should there be topics that cross field boundaries? (Whether it's because they are conceptually oriented, or because they bring in comparative material?)
  • Should there be one or more units that EVERY section of Art 101 does - a formal analysis module, for instance? (Aden's first medieval option might come the closest.)

Some themes

  • replication and relations between images
  • image-text relations
  • the sacred (and the secular)

Recurring authors

  • Schapiro
  • Clark
  • Krauss
  • Bois

Inventory of local object case studies

  • Smart and AIC lekythoi
  • Tintoretto's Rape of Lucretia (AIC)
  • Speculum Romanae prints (Regenstein)
  • Ida Noyes theater mural/film
  • Chinese painting and/or calligraphy (need some help from Ping on locations)
  • Picasso/Kahnweiler (AIC)
  • Warhol and Lichtenstein Shopping Bags (Smart)
  • Heartfield AIZ cover and Lissitzky's children's book Story of Two Squares (Regenstein)

...what else? what are we missing that's important in art history?
