The Urban Experience

Instructor: Susanna W. Gold, PhD

The city as a significant subject in American and European art emerged in the 19th century and developed into the 20th century. Looking at art produced in America and Europe from the 1870s to the 1930s, consider how the urban experience was influential for artists and viewers in terms of style, environment, and social experience.
