The European Roots of American Art

This course focuses on the study of select American artists in Europe from the colonial period to the post-1945 era. These artists were offered exposure to the great ateliers, museums, and frescoes overseas. A few of these artists in the twentieth century remained in the US for their professional training, yet they absorbed European sources. The influence of European art enriched the development of American art from its early years to its celebrated position in the post-World War II world. We will better understand the ever-expanding question of what comprises American art. 10 to 11:30 a.m. Mondays, Nov. 30 through Dec. 21. case.edu/lifelonglearning/courses/courses-subject/art-music-theater/european-roots-american-art-remote
