This course covers the second part of the Open University Course A216, ART AND ITS HISTORIES (1999). The course was a second level course which was designed for students who were new to the discipline of art history and for those who had a little experience. This was the third section of the course which examines the role of gender difference in the production, consumption and interpretation of works of art. Encompassing European art, architecture and design from the sixteenth century to the present day, it explores the work of women artists and the ways that visual representation by male and female artists may be gendered. The course takes a series of case studies drawn from different historical periods and displaying varying critical approaches.
