The names of Ralegh, Drake and the Earls of Essex and Leicester, alongside other favourites who circled around the Virgin Queen, reverberate in history. Were they were self-sacrificing heroes, altruistic courtiers and pioneers committed to serving their queen or self-seeking adventurers who found her court a profitable place to be?


Art History - More Art in context
Tutor: Katia Mai PhD
Study Morning: Saturday 2 December 10am – 1pm   
Location: University of Kent Medway, Chatham Maritime 
Course fee: £17.50

 

This course follows on from the Spring 2017 study morning: it contains new material so it is not necessary to have attended the previous course to benefit from this one.

 

Students will learn how to “formally” assess an art work by investigating composition techniques and analysing art historical elements as well as biographical details about the artist. We will look at a wide range of art works including painting, sculpture, drawings and photography and investigate the various relevant contexts in which these artworks have to be seen. This lecture is for everyone who is interested in art, and will help you to gain valuable knowledge to make your next museum visits more enjoyable.
