ARTH 1173 - FWS: Portraiture


     
Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

First-Year Writing Seminar.

B. Anderson.

How does one capture the likeness of an individual? What purposes do portraits serve, and by which criteria may they be judged? Are there aspects of a person that elude representation? We will pose these questions of both artistic and literary portraits, and seek answers by writing about portraits here at Cornell: in our museums, libraries, and around campus.
