Professor Baker is the best. He is so engaging when lecturing and he makes the material so much more interesting to learn. The midterm and final are relatively easy, as long as you memorize the pieces he gives you and have a general understanding of the readings. The TA section is mandatory and is also very helpful. Such a good class, I absolutely loved this GE.

Professor Baker's lectures were always extremely engaging and funny despite teaching a subject I had little interest in. He is animated, relatable and seems to genuinely enjoy teaching Modern Art.

Currently selling the three textbooks "Passages in Modern Sculpture", "Theories of Modern Art", and "The Artwork Caught by the Tail" which are all required in the syllabus so contact [email protected] if you're interested.

Professor Baker could be lecturing about the most incredibly mundane topic and I would still be at the edge of my seat. He is so passionate about this material, making it easy to engage with and master it. He has amazing speaking skills, always delivering his points in a clear and precise way. He organized lecture well and made it really easy to follow the main themes.
I genuinely enjoyed going to lecture; his humor and passion made it like going to a performance.
I wish Baker was my professor for every class. Would definitely recommend it.
