    The course will develop a comparative study of art as an expression of human experience from the development of the paradigms of beauty and aesthetics developed during the Renaissance to the contemporary perception of beauty. The course will include major artists and influences in terms of styles and movements. The course will feature a contrast between the "two cities" within the city that embody these diverse ways to convey art and beauty as an experiential pathway for understanding the evolution of artistic language and its possible directions in the future.
