Witness what art felt like since the Middle Ages to the present day in an innovative, interactive experience.

Through this informal and engaging series of talks you will have the opportunity to dive into the art history world.

Our unique format will allow you to learn and express yourself, in an open and relaxed atmosphere.

Each session is a time-travel to a specific historical period. The course works wonders as a comprehensive view of art history and progression, but sessions can also be booked separately.

The sessions

I. Middle Ages

Although long considered as 'dark centuries', the Middle Ages were actually a time of lively artistic production. Familiarise with the arts of this long period, that culminated in one of the most impactful visual revolutions.

II. Renaissance

Starting from the 15th century, the arts expressed a profound cultural renovation. Which were the elements of it? What did it mean to Renaissance men to feel like 'dwarfs on the shoulders of giants'? How were similar issues explored in different countries?

III. Dutch Painting, Mannerism and Baroque

The 17th century was a time of exciting artistic diversification and ever-growing international connections. An exploration and reflection on the various European styles, so diverse and yet so intertwined.

IV. British Painting in the 18th and 19th century

How did British art stand in relation to continental schools? Why can it be considered so distinctive in its development? A stimulating analysis of the British artistic and cultural debate of the 1700s and 1800s.

V. From Rococo to Romanticism

Under the light of the striking artworks produced during the 18th and 19th century, discover, consider and discuss the increasing mutual impact of the arts on the transforming societies of the time, and vice versa.

VI. Impressionism

A close observation of the artworks produced by this celebrated artistic movement, in their context, and of their relation to other artworks from the same period, to discover the first signs of the radical revolution that was about to take place.

VII. The 20th Century and Us

This session works as an open conversation, where the transformation of the very idea of art, and what it can create, will be discussed, analysed, questioned and connected to the present voices.
