The connoisseur has always operated at the core of art history. However, in more recent times, interest surrounding meaning and contextual history has overshadowed material analysis and authentication. This new course seeks to reframe the connoisseur in the context of the twenty-first century and re-establish its essential role in art historical research. Through specialist insight, external visits and case studies, participants will rediscover the importance of looking; to decipher, and challenge, the authorship of a work of art.
This course includes:
- Expert lectures with time for questions and discussion
- Learning in the Institute's historic Georgian townhouse campus at the heart of Bloomsbury
- Networking opportunities with faculty and fellow participants
- Certificate of participation on completion of the course
