Course Description: Music 363 is an interdisciplinary course that focuses on visual art (including sculpture and architecture) and music and on the interrelationship among the arts in historical eras from the Renaissance through the 19th century. We will examine general principles common to all the arts, as well as specific patterns, structures and meaning that artists found in the cultural context of their day. The sheer magnitude of the visual art, architecture, and sculpture that we will experience in Paris will bring the arts in a manner that we cannot approach in the classroom in Long Beach. We will study the holdings of the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay, and we will take in the sights of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Sainte-Chapelle. We will have two excursions outside of Paris—the Palace of Versailles and Chartres cathedral. As in London, all of our events will be accompanied by a local, expert guide who will help bring alive the history and meaning of the arts we will experience.
