Western Art History 1 (AH210) constitutes the first half of a two-semester, required course that introduces students to art historical issues and important monuments in the Western tradition, from pre-history through the mid-nineteenth century. It establishes a social, political, and historical context for the production of art in society, and provides art students with a sense of the historical development of styles as a continuous tradition relating to their own work. This course is coordinated with the History of Western Civilization course.

Prerequisites: Western Art 1 (AH210) must be taken before Western Art 2 (AH220).
