You will be taught how Spanish art developed and absorbed influences not just from Europe but from its early history of invasion by Arab and Islamic peoples. Spain also produced pioneers of new styles, for example Picasso was responsible for developing the movement known as Cubism.
The course will cover well-known painters such as El Greco, Velazquez, Goya, Picasso and Dali but will also include less well known artists such as Zubaran, Juan Miro, Julio Gonzalez and Joachim Sorolla. There will also be time to look at the work of architect, Antoni Gaudi and the contemporary paintings of Portuguese artist, Paola Rego.
