This course will look at how a fascination with a new country and the influence of European art, brought by successive waves of immigrants, inspired America to become the world leader of art in the 20th century. From the landscape paintings of the Hudson River School, to the searching studies of American life of Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper, to the modernism of Jackson Pollock, Rauschenberg and Warhol, our journey takes in the spectacular landscape and restless urban life of the United States.
