Professor Lionel Gossman of the Department
of Romance Languages and Literature explores
the goals, motivations, and achievements of the so-called
"Nazarene" artists of the early nineteenth century,
and offers some thoughts on how they came to be sidelined
in the narrative of the history of art. Internationally acclaimed
in their own time, the Nazarene artists are scarcely known
to the museum-going public in most Western countries today.
The lectureware is FREE to alumni, and requires
the latest Macromedia
Flash Player. It comprises about one hour of audio
synchronized with images, animations, video, and text, and
subdivided into segments of about ten minutes, so participants
may proceed at their own pace.
If you have a high-speed connection, such
as DSL or Cable Modem, you may take the course directly over
the Internet by clicking the Attend button.
Otherwise you may order the stand-alone CD-ROM by clicking
on the Order CD.
