ART-601O-01 ST: Hist of Sequential Art (2 )
Brower, Steven I

Instruction Type: Online

This is an art history course tracing the historical evolution of sequential art. Beginning with cave painting and proceeding to hieroglyphics and onto illuminated manuscripts humans have been communicating through pictures since the very beginning. In the mid 18th in Europe the cartoon form was introduced, and by the beginnings of the next century comic strips were a stable of American culture. Soon comic books arrived and the world has not been the same since. In recent decades the longer form graphic novel has taken hold. This rich history will all be covered.
