Memling to Rubens: Flemish Painting at the Wallace Collection

Wednesday 17th June to Friday 19th June 11am-1pm

In this three-day course we explore the history and enduring appeal of Flemish Art through a study of paintings in the Wallace Collection, from van Dyck’s grand portraits and Rubens' enduring popular landscapes to the still life paintings of Frans Snyders and Johannes Fyt. The course will be led by Wallace Collection lecturer Siân Walters.

The course comprises three live-streamed lectures which will be given at 11.00am BST (British Summer Time). Tune in from anywhere in the world to watch or enjoy a recorded version of the lecture which can be accessed for up to 24 hours afterwards. Each session will last approximately 2 hours with a short break and a question/answer session. Students will be provided with comprehensive hand-outs and a suggested reading list/online resources before the course begins - these will be sent by email. 

Participant numbers for 3-day courses will be limited to allow for extended discussion. Those wishing to use the microphone/webcam function can appear in the lecture to ask their questions. There will also be a virtual "coffee break" where those wishing to use this function can chat informally and see one another.

Synopsis:

Between the early fifteenth and mid seventeenth centuries the cities of Bruges, Ghent, Brussels and Antwerp enjoyed great economic prosperity and artistic prestige, attracting an international mercantile clientele keen to commission works from leading artists from van Eyck to Rubens.  In this three-day course we will examine the history of painting in the Southern Netherlands within its political, religious, social and economic context.

Lecture 1: The Golden Age of Flemish Art

Lecture 2: Rubens and his Legacy  

Lecture 3: Grand Designs – The Age of van Dyck
