Dutch Masters of art history (ENG)

This course is taught in English


In this course, we discuss the most important Dutch Masters! In six lessons, our expert on Dutch Art History, Yvonne Hilgenkamp, offers a nice overview of all that the Netherlands has to offer in terms of visual art and architecture. The focus is on the most important Dutch artists and they pass in chronological order. Think of: Van Gogh; Rembrandt; Vermeer; Hieronymus Bosch; Mondrian; Rem Koolhaas; Rietveld; Berlage & Cuypers. But there is also room for surprises and discoveries. Ten centuries of Dutch art history, that's a thousand years of colour and tradition, innovation and daring. Of paint and canvas, bronze and marble, glass and stone. Centuries of portraits, landscapes, Dutch design, ice skating, interiors, seascapes and that typically Dutch light. Medieval cathedrals, seventeenth-century canal houses, working-class palaces of the Amsterdam School and contemporary 'starchitects': from the Sint Servaas and the Palace on Dam Square to the Beurs van Berlage and the Rotterdam Market Hall. By the end of the course, you will know all about these virtuosos of Dutch art.

Reviews of this course

KLU online is fantastic! Meanwhile, I have already taken several courses and been taught by 3 teachers: Hanneke Lenders, Yvonne Hilgenkamp and Barry Heinrichs. Each and every one of them teachers to be proud of. A true enrichment of my lessons at the Oudenaarde Academy of Drawing.
About Dutch Masters of art history (ENG)
I really loved Yvonne's course. It remains amazing the way she can convey everything with enthusiasm. She even got me excited about modern architecture which I thought was not my preference. And it's especially nice that I can take the course just from home. I will definitely take more courses from Yvonne.
