OSK ResMA Summer School 2018-2019


‘Dutch artists in Paris. From François I to the French Revolution’



It is commonly known that Italian artists influenced Northern Europe from the Renaissance onwards. However, a recent exhibition in the Louvre illustrated once again that the contacts among Northern European artists were very important as well. More particularly the exhibition concentrated on the influence of artists from the Low Countries at the court of Fontainebleau in the age of François I. This will be our starting point to explore how in later periods Dutch art kept on playing a crucial role in France. Ultimately we will look at the French art historians from the eighteenth century and how their discussions of the Dutch Golden Age influenced art in their own time. Thus this course will look at the visual and decorative arts, as well as art theory and other writings on art.           


The course will be taught as an excursion with two preparatory classes. Furthermore, students will be required to give presentations during the seminar. They will also write an essay of approximately 3000-3500 words (incl. notes), to be handed in after the course (deadline: 1 August 2019).
