Understanding Art: Leonardo to Warhol
Visual intelligence is crucial in navigating the world of images that convey coded messages, and the history of ideas fundamental to all disciplines. How do we read such images? This course decodes paintings, sculptures, prints, architecture, photography and digital images, providing, tools to analyse artists from Leonardo to Warhol: experts at moving the eye around the artwork for meanings to emerge.
