As the course progresses, personal feelings about the landscape around you will develop, you will see the world around you differently.

Art History: Making & Meaning (1) View details

"Making and Meaning: Revealing the Hidden Secrets of Art 1" presents the basics of understanding and interpretation or "reading" of paintings and other art media, illustrated by the works of selected European artists from the later Middle Ages and Renaissance. The diverse topics which appear in art which will be explored include: Heraldry; Law and Justice; Classical Mythology; Sibyls and Prophesy; and Personal Decoration. The lives and locations of the producers of art, the artists and patrons, will also be examined and discussed by the group, aided by the Tutor. This course will continue in Spring 2019 with more fascinating topics, further enabling you to understand and appreciate the making and meaning of great works of art.

Art History: Two Artists: Two Paintings View details

Each week students will study in-depth two works of art. The works will be by different artists who may have been contemporaries, possibly rivals, or simply members of a movement. Alternatively they may be separated by hundreds of years. The works themselves may be famous or obscure. They may share common themes or subject matter, compositional approaches, or some external link. Students will have no prior knowledge of the works and will therefore explore the possible connections between the two works and their creators from scratch. They will have access to primary sources, other works by the artists, and critical analysis to help them discuss and formulate ideas. This study in microcosm will enable them to find out about the art world these artists worked in and how their work fits into the broader trend of art history.
