20 WEEK SHORT COURSE: Following the success of last year’s course, we are offering an expanded and more detailed version that explores the history of British art through close examination of examples held in the V&A’s unrivalled collection of paintings, drawings and prints.

The course begins with the flowering of Catholic art prior to the Reformation and extends to the emergence of the Young British Artists and work by Damien Hirst and Tracy Emin. It examines the foremost artists of the Tudor, Stuart, Georgian, Victorian and Modern periods, including miniatures by Isaac Oliver and Richard Hilliard, portraits by Van Dyck, Gainsborough, and Freud, landscapes by Constable, Turner and Cotman, and narrative works by Hogarth, Blake, and the Pre-Raphaelites.

Course Leader: Richard Humphreys
