Summer Course: Dutch Art of the Golden Age
This summer from 16th of August until the 27the of August the AMSU in association with the RKD and CODART (International Council of Curators of Dutch and Flemish Art), The Hague, and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam has organised a summer course titled: Dutch Art of the Golden Age: Sources and Perspectives.
The aim of this intensive 10-day course is to give an in-depth introduction to the study of 17th-century Dutch art in the Netherlands with a focus on paintings, drawings and prints. Participants will gain knowledge on how to use research facilities as well as visit important museum collections of Dutch art in the Netherlands.
A series of lectures and workshops by prominent scholars and curators will provide a comprehensive overview of current Dutch research projects and methodologies. A number of the sessions have been designed to encourage discussion between the speakers and the course participants. There will be ample opportunity for discussion while viewing original works of art. The workshops will allow participants to conduct research themselves, thereby providing hands-on experience with source materials. The participants are also offered the opportunity to build up a network of contacts with scholars and curators in the Netherlands which may facilitate their future study of Dutch art.
The course is primarily intended for graduate students and professional art historians specialising in the field of 17th-century Dutch art. The ability to communicate well in English, is required.
Candidates will be selected on the basis of their detailed curriculum vitae and letter of motivation.
Please send this as soon as possible to: firstname.lastname@example.org. After you have been selected, you will be invited to pay the course fee of 900 EURO.
