Dutch Golden Age painting brought the world treasures such as Girl With a Pearl Earring, from a generation of inimitable artists who became known as the Dutch Masters. On this one-hour course, you’ll learn about the period, which spans the 17th century, and the Baroque movement that heavily influenced it. Professor Federico von Borstel will deconstruct the priceless paintings of artists such as Vermeer and Rembrandt, equipping you with the ability to understand and critically evaluate the most significant works from the era. Bring along a blank canvas – your tutor will talk you through how to imitate the style yourself.
