FOUR WEEK SHORT COURSE: Explore the evolution and important social role of portraiture in the Renaissance. Discover how portraits were made, and how they were used in contexts ranging from marriage to death, dynasty to devotion.

Find out how they express status and personal qualities, learn how to ‘read’ a renaissance portrait from its costume and still-life detail, and discover how the self portrait emerged in this age of the individual.
