ARTHIST 1B: How to Look at Art and Why: An Introduction to the History of Western Painting

This course explores the relation of art to life¿how and why works of art, even from hundreds of years ago, matter in a person¿s life. It trains students to find the words to share their thoughts about art with their peers, friends, and family. Some fundamental questions the course considers: How do we get beyond the idea that the study and making of art are elite, ¿privileged¿ activities apart from the real world? How do we develop a sense of discernment¿of deciding for ourselves which artists matter, and which don¿t¿without being a snob? How can works of art teach us to feel the wonder of being alive and our deep debt to the past, to the dead? Focusing on painters such as Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Goya, Manet, Morisot, and Charlotte Salomon, this course will pursue these questions with the aim of challenging and encouraging students to develop their own ways of thinking and feeling¿generously and ethically¿about the past and the present. Sections will focus on original works of art at the Cantor Arts Center. No prerequisites required.

CS 231C: Computer Vision and Image Analysis of Art

This course presents the application of rigorous image processing, computer vision, machine learning, computer graphics and artificial intelligence techniques to problems in the history and interpretation of fine art paintings, drawings, murals and other two-dimensional works, including abstract art. The course focuses on the aspects of these problems that are unlike those addressed widely elsewhere in computer image analysis applied to physics-constrained images in photographs, videos, and medical images, such as the analysis of brushstrokes and marks, medium, inferring artists¿ working methods, compositional principles, stylometry (quantification of style), the tracing of artistic influence, and art attribution and authentication. The course revisits classic problems, such as image-based object recognition, but in highly non-realistic, stylized artworks. Recommended: One of CS 131 or EE 168 or equivalent; ARTHIST 1B. Prerequisites: Programming proficiency in at least one of C, C++, Python, Matlab or Mathematica and tools/frameworks such as OpenCV or Matlab's Image Processing toolbox.
