Stay in three of Europe's most wonderful cities, cover around 2000 years of Western art, visit all the relevant museums and sites and yet feel like you’ve done no more than just skim the surface. The European Highlights combines a broad approach with profound analysis over the period of six weeks in Florence, Utrecht and Berlin. Seize this opportunity to travel back through time and through some of Europe's most incredible museums in only one summer!
In Florence, you will have the chance to see the works of the great Italian Masters of the Renaissance in the flesh, visiting the many renowned museums, magnificent cathedrals and grand palaces.
The journey then continues up north, to Utrecht. Since the Netherlands is a relatively small country, we will visit several cities to discover Dutch art of the Golden Age. All the landscapes, seascapes, portraits and still lifes may look so realistic that one can feel the sea-breeze and smell the grapes, but in fact, nothing in these artistic works really is what it seems.
The last two weeks of the course usually take place in Berlin. This will either be offered on location, in Utrecht, or via an online course.
Upon completion, you will have experienced Western Art in broad strokes, and covered particular periods in great detail. The course is highly interactive, and for a large part takes place in front of the original artworks.
The course is open to participants (graduates and non-graduates) from all disciplines with a keen interest in Art History. No previous experience required.
Course fee: €2800
Housing cost: €1050
