Short Courses


Renaissance Art and Material Culture

28 June - 2 July 2021

A new 5-day short course convened by Rembrandt Duits (Deputy Curator of the Photographic Collection). The course will draw on a range of approaches and a broad array of material culture in an examination of how various strata of Early Modern European society experienced and appreciated "art", and how such wider popular narratives fit alongside the more traditional art historical perspectives of the great Renaissance painters, sculptor and architects.
