ART HISTORY COURSE

The course follows a chronological order: from the late roman art period to today. 
A slide show is presented during the course (35 slides for every lesson) this allows for the study and analysis of styles, typical techniques and trends developed in different societies throughout the ages. Simultaneously, we also consider the historical events and heightened intellectual tensions as they too, influenced artistic innovation. 

Although this course draws particular attention to the history of architecture and painting, it also examines other shapes of artistic expression (sculpture, jewelry making, miniature, and engraving) Additionally, it examines the most recent tendencies tied to the origin of new technologies. 

The subdivision of the various periods and movements is not strictly adhered to. Moreover, during the course, a series of tendencies and chronological links will be created to show, where possible, the continuity of feelings and conceptions between artists living in various periods, as well the contribution of extra-European cultures in the evolution of the western art. 

Subject Themes
The course is divided in three parts, each consisting of 48 hours (24 lessons of two hours each).

Intensive course
On demand, the course can be condensed into three lessons only of two hours each. Also in this case, every lesson is followed by the projection of 35 slides.
