About

Ever since the Middle Ages, the Netherlands has played a pivotal role in the history of European art and culture. During the Dutch Art History course Maastricht Summer School, students will be given an overview of the development of Dutch art from the Middle Ages to the modern era. It includes field trips to various museums to view the original works.

Overview

Key facts:

  • Ever since the Middle Ages the Netherlands has played a pivotal role in the history of European art and culture. Dutch and Flemish artists were the first to use oil paints, the first to visually document the lives and cultures of ordinary people, and the first to produce art for a free market. 
  • Painters such as Van Eyck, Brueghel, Bosch, Rubens, Vermeer, Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Mondriaan are counted among the great masters of history. Their art embodies qualities that are believed to be typical for the country, such as a devotion to truthfulness, attention to detail, and love of textures. But there were many more artists whose works are still considered among the most important in history – if only because they were the first to notice the mundane things nobody else had paid attention to, such as the beauty of a still-life or the wonders of a cloudy sky. 
  • From the late Middle Ages through the Renaissance and the Baroque to the modern era, Dutch artists have tried to come to terms with ever-changing principles and conceptions regarding the world around them and have been constantly improving techniques to visualize it. The results of their efforts are the subject of this course.
  • The Dutch Art History course at the Maastricht Summer School will mostly follow a chronological order. In the first lecture the (religious) significance of art in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Baroque will be introduced. In the following lectures you will be given an overview of the development of Dutch art from the Middle Ages to the modern era.
  • The course will include field trips to various museums in Amsterdam, the Hague or Arnhem to view the original works.
