Throughout history, art and music have together illuminated a myriad of social and cultural trends and movements, from Hogarth and Handel in the mid-eighteenth century, the Impressionists and Debussy in the late nineteenth to the Modernist era. Beginning with the Baroque, this inspiring course addresses the synergy between the visual arts and music between 1600 and today. Each session combines the visual and auditory senses to build an understanding of the influences that each art form had upon the other.

This course includes:

  • Expert lectures with time for questions and discussion;
  • Special guided visits to the auction house, galleries and dealers in the historic Mayfair and St. James;
  • 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.
