YEAR COURSE: Gain a unique perspective on one of the most dynamic periods in the history of European art. Consider the relationship between the visual arts and the wider political and cultural context of the period and explore themes such as taste, patronage and the art market.
This course encompasses Rococo, Romanticism, Impressionism and Art Nouveau. It not only covers the fine arts, such as painting and sculpture, but also design, architecture and popular visual culture. The programme of lectures, together with close examination of important objects in the V&A’s collections, demonstrate the complex changes taking place in various branches of the visual arts over a 200-year period.
