Participants will gain knowledge on how to use research facilities in the Netherlands and will visit the most important collections and monuments of Netherlandish art under the expert guidance of museum curators and other specialists.
A series of lectures, presentations and excursions with prominent scholars and museum professionals will provide a comprehensive overview of current Dutch research projects and methodologies. Special attention will be given to combining art-historical research and the technical examination of works of art. 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 in front of the original works of art. Moreover, the participants are offered the possibility to build up a network of contacts with scholars and curators in The Netherlands.
The course is primarily intended for graduate students, museum curators and professional art historians specialising in the field of 15th and 16th century Netherlandish art. There will be a maximum of 25 participants. The ability to communicate well in English, is required.
