Art Appreciation: Vermeer and the Dutch Interior

In this course you will explore the forces which were at work creating the 'golden century' of Dutch culture and art, from c.1580 - c.1680. Focusing on the kinds of connection visual artists were making with the public, we examine the gradual transformation from a public art celebrating public events, through groups who both satirised immoralities and (sometimes simultaneously) celebrated personal and social pleasures, into a rising concern for the portrayal of their own culture, mores and private lives. Through the paintings themselves we will examine changing attitudes to the state, to religion, to morality, to private life, and to pleasure.

Art Appreciation: The Art of France, from Lascaux Cave to the 1789 Revolution

When we think about French Art, we might first imagine Impressionist paintings and Cézanne’s apples, or Matisse’s colourful paintings. But what about art created before the 19th century? In this course you will learn about key works of art, from the prehistoric paintings of Chauvet to the Rococo paintings of Boucher. The examples we will study will be diverse: Gallo-Roman mosaics, Carolingian manuscript illuminations, and frescoes in Romanesque churches, paintings by Enguerrand Quarton and Georges de la Tour, the gardens of Vaux-le-Vicomte, and much more. These artistic treasures, part of the country’s heritage, will also be an opportunity to enrich your knowledge of the history, geography, and culture of France.
