The course presents a basic overview of the history of western art from the early medieval to the contemporary time period through the art and architecture in Prague. The city of Prague, that is, can be viewed as a picture composed of centuries of art historical continuity, practically untouched by any timely technological jumps and disruptions. We will study and discuss Romanesque and Gothic art, Renaissance and Baroque art, 19th century art and architecture, Art Nouveau, Modern art, as well as contemporary art and architecture. The classroom lectures will be combined with excursions throughout the city, to historical sites, and to museums and art galleries in Prague.
