Course Description

Ms. Angevine returns for this beautiful short course to introduce you to the rich history of art in the Netherlands—a small country with a massive art presence. Beginning in the Middle Ages with their mastery of oil paints, Netherlandish artists achieved the unmatched tactile and spatial realism of Rembrandt, Rubens, and Vermeer; modern Dutch artists, such as Vincent van Gogh and Piet Mondrian, helped create modern art. The tradition of innovation continues with Karel Appel, Luc Tuymans, Marcel Broodthaers. All this and you’ll even learn something about tulips, Delft porcelain, and the mysterious workings of M.C. Esher’s mind. What’s not to like?
