ARTH 1173

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

How does one capture the likeness of an individual? What purposes do portraits serve, and by which criteria may they be judged? Are there aspects of a person that elude representation? We will pose these questions of both artistic and literary portraits, and seek answers by writing about portraits here at Cornell: in our museums, libraries, and around campus.

When Offered Fall.
