In fact, some of the highest prices for art were awarded to art depicting people. This course explores our fascination with ourselves by looking across the ages at art of the human form. From Leonardo da Vinci’s drawing of the Vitruvian Man, to portraits of Michelle Obama, to the comic books that inspired Roy Lichtenstein, and all the way back to cave paintings, we will search for a way to make sense of why people love to look at images of the human form so deeply.
