In 2017, the seminar will survey art and architecture in the Czech Lands (Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia, Lusatia) ca. 1500-1800 in relation to those elsewhere in Central Europe and more generally on the continent (e.g Italy, Germany, Low Countries). Focus on the “magic city” of Prague. Some attention will be paid to previous and subsequent time periods. Trip to Prague, Brno, and Olomouc during Spring Break.
