Considers the impact on art of expanding sea trade between Europe and East Asia in the early modern period. Begins by examining what goods went where; how increasingly global trade affected particular economies; how the East India companies operated; and what effects stepped-up contact had stylistically and iconographically on art forms such as porcelain, prints and paintings. On a more theoretical level, the course addresses 'things foreign' as a means of asserting cultural authority at home; and the impact of vastly expanded markets on the artist's practice and identity. Meets the Critical Perspectives: Global Cultures requirement. (Not offered 2017-18).
