Description

Writers have always looked to the visual arts for inspiration, image material, and a lens of sensibility for examining ourselves and the world.  Rilke and Hemingway credit art (Cezanne‚Äôs paintings in particular) for teaching them how to write.  Students will read ekphrastic literature (writing that treats the visual arts) and, in the company of some of the greatest paintings and art available nowhere else in the world, think about the aesthetic exchange between the disciplines. We will read and discuss the books before we travel. Students must also register for the German Romanticism course (MH491/MH492/IN350).
