Program description

From the late Middle Ages to the present, Dutch artists have figured prominently in some of the most significant moments of European art history.

From medieval Netherlandish art to nineteenth-century Romanticism, from seventeenth-century genre painting to the De Stijl movement of the 1920s; the Dutch artistic tradition is as much a product of the interaction, exchange and reception of ideas and images occurring throughout Europe as it is a reflection of the Dutch themselves. When viewed from a European perspective, Dutch art possesses a richness and variety that cannot be comprehended solely by looking at the accomplished works of the Netherlands' most highly esteemed artists. This programme offers students a unique opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the historiography of Dutch art in its multifaceted relationship to the broader cultural and artistic European context. (Please note that the programme does not provide a general overview of Dutch art history.)
