Embark on a journey to interactively discover centuries of art. How did British art stand in relation to continental schools in the 18th century? Why can it be considered so distinctive in its development? These and more questions will be addressed as we explore the arts produced by British artists during the 1700s and 1800s, in the fifth session of the ‘An Essential Art History’ course.

The series features eight sessions, stretching from the Middle Ages to the present; they are interactive, dynamic and engaging, and have been designed by art historian Sara Riccardi (History of Art MA in Rome, founder of Art Across) to create connections between the past and the present, highlighting in a chronological overview the threads linking together centuries of artistic production. The aim is to provide you with a new set of categories that will change the way you enjoy art, and which can go on to inform your work, artistic practice or further academic or personal studies.

Each session can be booked and attended separately, but the series is enjoyed at its best by attending regularly.

Ticket: £20, special offer for the full course £120
