Words and Pictures: Connoisseurship and Attribution

Module code: HA1320 (double module)

Words and pictures are the art historian's raw materials and tools. This module introduces you to the key genres of art historical writing (from scholarly articles to dictionary entries and exhibition catalogues), and, through discussion and visual analysis, equips you with the skills necessary to interpret and analyse the pictures about which they write. 

This is a double-weighted module. Extended seminars enable you to encounter a greater range of pictures and critical approaches for their interpretation than HA1120.
