FA 275 Mysticism and Modern Art


3 credits

Mysticism and Modern Art shows the relationship between spiritual philosophies and the rise of abstract modern art. Mystics wrote copious doctrines, founded their own societies, and accumulated large followings, many of whom were artists and writers. These creators were propelled to paint and sculpt the unseen world. They channeled spirits in search of eternal truths, heralded scientific discoveries as proof of the spiritual dimension, and saw art as the visible revelation of the invisible world. As such, this course traces spiritualism and the visual arts through key movements from the 18th to the 21st centuries, including Romanticism, Symbolism, Expressionism, and Minimalism.
