Course Overview


On this course you will develop a broad understanding of the fascinating progress of Western art from its origins in ancient Greece up to present times. In the process you will be introduced to the glories of the renaissance, the extravagances of baroque, and learn of all the major movements, from romanticism to modernism. This course will demonstrate that a study of art is also a study of history and society, because all art is a product of its time and place. Two gallery visits included.

For new students, there will be a survey of European Art from its origin in ancient Greece and up to mid-19th C. Then we will look, in detail, at topics such as Impressionism to post-impressionism, Modernism, Women artists from 16th to 20th centuries, the Pre-Raphaelites, and look at individual artists, such as Michelangelo and Caravaggio. Lectures will focus on helping you make the most of your gallery visits at home and abroad; gallery visit included.
