Course Overview

The patronage of the Dukes of Burgundy and the merchants of the trading centres in the Netherlands during the 15th century contributed towards one of the most vibrant periods of artistic production from the precious illuminated manuscripts to the outstanding productions of Netherlandish painters such as Jan van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden or Memling. Vibrant tapestries and glittering objects of gold and silver adorned the palaces of the wealthy. German and Netherlandish artists were responsible for innovations in drawing and painting techniques, not least the perfection of the oil technique through which their paintings became famous throughout Europe.

Towards the end of the century, in particular, the painter Hieronymus Bosch combined the new and the traditional in his extraordinary artistic productions, which were explored in a series of exhibitions in 2016, marking the five hundredth anniversary of his death. This has resulted in new research into his subject matter and techniques which will be the subject of study in the last part of this course.
