In order to incorporate visits to both of the forthcoming exhibitions in the National Gallery this year, ‘Beyond Caravaggio’ and ‘Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting’, I have decided to run the course on 17th Century European Art later in the year. Please find all the details below.
17th Century European Art
Description: Some of the most famous and revered artists through history were working during the 17th century in Europe. This course starts in Rome with an exploration of the paintings of Caravaggio and the Carracci followed by an in-depth look into the works of the master sculptor and architect Bernini in the same city. Other regions to be discussed will be Spain and the influence of the Inquisition on artists like Velasquez, the Dutch Republic and the specific tastes of the growing middle classes which affected the careers of master painters including Rembrandt and Vermeer.
This course will include visits to two exciting exhibitions coming to the National Gallery this year, ‘Beyond Caravaggio’ and ‘Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting’.
