shared cultural outlook gives meaning to human experience and is, in 
turn, expressed through works of art. This course considers the 
achievements of the Renaissance, the Modern Era, and the Post-Modern 
Era, treating them chronologically in order to provide a sense of 
change and development in succeeding epochs.  There will be lectures,
