(NOT OFFERED IN 2009-2010)
This course examines interior architectural environments and their contents from the late Middle Ages to the development of Art Deco. We begin by covering the development of the Renaissance interior and its furnishings, considered here to be the beginning of the secular decorative arts. We continue with an examination of the Baroque period, 18th-century France, England and the U.S.A., and the 18th-century vernacular. We explore the picturesque, the Gothic Revival and 19th-century Romanticism, ending with Art Nouveau and the early stages of Modernism.
Anti-requisite: Students who have previously taken ACAD 3B36 may not take this course for further credit.
