This course explores European art from the reign of Louis XIV through the French Revolution--a period marked by the birth of modern ideas about individualism, the senses, liberty, love, sex, and the family. We will explore how these social and intellectual transformations were reflected in the subject matter and materiality of paintings and prints, and in the sensuous objects and furnishings that helped define the modern domestic interior as a space of comfort, convenience, privacy, and intimacy.
