Introduction Course Art History
From Ancient Greek to Modern Art
The Introduction to Art History course offers a wonderful insight into the history of Western art. During a series of ten lectures and a visit to a museum you will be presented with a chronological overview of the most important movements in the history of art.
A total of 11 course sessions, one of which will be conducted as an excursion.
The tutor Carien Kanters will teach you how to analyse and compare what you see, so by the end of the series of lectures you yourself will be able to identify different styles and periods. The lectures will focus on the defining features of a particular style. Considerable attention will also be devoted to individual artists and their work. Discover the world of art in a relaxed setting with an enthusiastic art historian as your guide.
