Description: 

This course will explore critically and creatively the influence of mysticism on symbolist landscape art in Europe and North America from the 1880s to the 1930s. Using written texts and visual images, it will analyze the ways in which major artists conveyed mystical experiences and ideals through iconography, style, colour, and facture, with special attention to the influence of Christian, Buddhist, Theosophical, and Primal traditions. These studies will include field trips to local galleries and introduction to the contemplative practices of Visio Divina and Mindfulness/Insight meditation.
