2. Respond to the following forums on Slack:

Slack channel #week11part1

  • Line vs. Color: Art in the late 18th and 19th centuries continued the debate about the proper style and approach to art that had begun in the 15th century with line vs. color. In the 17th century this expanded to include the rivalry between reason and emotion. Choose a work from Neoclassicism and a work from Romanticism, and discuss how they reflect these arguments.

Slack channel #week11part2

  • The Enlightenment: Neoclassicism and Romanticism both grew out of the Age of Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution – one a reaffirmation of Enlightenment principles and the other a reaction against them. Discuss how the work in this unit responds to this debate. Use specific examples.
