Saturday Study Events in Art History

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and in order to safeguard the health and well-being of our staff and participants, The Courtauld has decided to postpone the spring and summer term Saturday Study Events. Please see below for rescheduled dates.  Booking remains open.

Our Saturday Study Events offer an intense engagement with works of art in their cultural contexts. They are led by one, two or more expert speakers and happen once a term.  Study Events combine in-depth lectures and lively discussion, and like all our programmes aim to be both scholarly and enjoyable.

This year, our three study events will focus on places of art-historical significance.  The spring and summer terms are dedicated to Renaissance Mantua and late nineteenth to early twentieth-century Munich, both major centres of artistic production and innovation.   In the autumn term, we shall look at Powis Castle in Wales and its Clive Collection of artefacts from India, as a significant deposit of the encounters between different cultures.

Saturday Study Events topics are free-standing, but some also serve to give additional context to our Study Tours.  (Attendance is free to participants of the corresponding Study Tour.)

These events welcome participants from the age of 15.  N.B. Those under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
