Coinciding with the re-opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s galleries dedicated to European Paintings, this course celebrates Netherlandish masters, from the Northern Renaissance period to the Baroque era, whose remarkable paintings were sought by princes and merchants throughout Europe. We will study Flemish and Dutch masters from the Met’s collection, explore the museum’s history of collecting Netherlandish art since its inception in 1870, and highlight works of intense naturalism and detail that stretched the technical and artistic boundaries of their day. Artists include Jan Van Eyck, Rogier van de Weyden, Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Breughel the Elder, Rembrandt van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer, Rachel Ruysch, Peter-Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck, and many more. Four museum visits are scheduled as part of regular classroom meetings.  Spring 2024 tuition is $899.
