This course will explore the art and architecture that two famous Bowdoin College graduates, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Nathaniel Hawthorne, would have seen 200 years ago. Through a visual survey of painting, sculpture, and architecture of England, France, and Italy from the 18th and 19th centuries, we will examine how these works influenced New England culture.
