About the Course
Discover how art and society developed by looking at paintings in the Tate Britain. Two on-site sessions in this admission-free gallery will introduce you to how British cultural values have been represented in art over the centuries.
Over the past 70 years Tate Britain became the home of British art from 1500 to present day. A special display was arranged to literally ‘Walk Through British Art’ and discover some of his distinctive personalities, from Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough to the Pre-raphaelites. Naturally, we will pay special attention and tribute to the art of J.M.W. Turner, perhaps the greatest British artist of his day. The Turner bequest comprises 300 oil paintings and will focus on a selection of approximately 10 pieces, including his famous Self-portrait.
Constructive and supportive feedback from your tutor will help you succeed during the class.
