This 8 week course is a diverse survey of the art produced in Northern Europe. We start in the Sixteenth century with Durer and Bruegel The Elder and then move on to the Golden Age of the Dutch Republic and the popularity of portraits, everyday life, still life and landscape (Rembrandt, Vermeer and others).
The preoccupation with home, lifestyle and status gives way to a more spiritual and contemplative mood as we look at the Romanticism of Casper David Friedrich before finally considering how a growing anxiety about a changing world is reflected in the art of Edvard Munch, Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele at the beginning of the Twentieth Century.
