Modern and Contemporary Art and Design in France (AW236)
Dr. Anna Tahinci - 6 sessions: June 10–26
Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:30–8:30 PM

This course explores modern and contemporary art movements and major artists in France throughout the 20th century to the present. The course examines France’s contributions to the origins of modern and contemporary art and design—from Cubism, Ready-mades, and Surrealism to French Expressionism, New Realism, and Relational Aesthetics. Emphasis will be not only on stylistic developments, but also on the way French artists interacted with the ideas and values of their culture and time. Analyzing French works from the permanent collection of the Museum will be an integral part of the class.

Monet and the Seine: Impressions of a River (ARH 313)
Dr. Anna Tahinci - Fall 2014
Thursdays (starting August 28th) 7:00 – 9:00 pm              

This course offers a unique opportunity to survey Claude Monet (1840-1926), a founder of French Impressionist painting and his study of the effect of light on the water of the river Seine. Monet’s artistic career will be examined in relation to major currents and themes in European art, history and culture. This fourteen-week program is based on the temporary exhibition Monet and the Seine: Impressions of a River, on view at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and will highlight current scholarship and conversations in order to reassess Monet’s unique artistic vision and his legacy to the art world. Visits to the exhibition will be an integral part of the class.

Auguste Rodin and His Cultural Impact (ARH 314)
Dr. Anna Tahinci - Spring 2015
Wednesdays (starting January 22, 2015) 10:00 am

This course examines how French sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) interacted with
his contemporaries and why the origins of modern sculpture are traced to him. Emphasis is not only on stylistic developments during the artist’s lifetime and artistic career, but also on the way Rodin interacted with the ideas and values of his culture and time. The aim
of the course is to increase visual literacy
and to deepen students’ awareness of the cultural and conceptual framework in which Rodin’s sculptures were made and used.
Class sessions are primarily lecture with
some discussion. Slide presentations and case studies of individual sculptures are incorporated in the course.
