Amsterdam, the ‘Venice of the North’ is unrivalled in Europe for the visual arts. This tour offers a unique opportunity to consolidate your learning on The Course’s year long programme The Golden Age of Dutch Art. You will see key artworks by Rembrandt and Vermeer and be transported back to the seventeenth century through beautifully preserved architecture and decor. But you will also be able to trace the development of Dutch art in the practice of Van Gogh and twentieth century avant gardists such as Mondrian. Highlights include a whole day in the Rijksmuseum whose much-anticipated re-opening has been greeted with critical acclaim for its stunning refurbishment and bold curation. You will also visit two beautiful 17th-century canal houses, exquisitely furnished and sited on world heritage canals.
Dr Marie-Anne Mancio trained as an artist before gaining a DPhil in Art History and Critical Theory from the University of Sussex. She has lectured on art for various institutions including The Course, Tate Modern, Art in London, University of Hertfordshire, and the City Lit. She has also written on art and architecture for Make, Art and Design, Europaconcorsi, and others. She has led private tours to Paris, Venice, and Florence. Since gaining an MPhil in Creative Writing, her practice is mainly text based and includes a conceptual art work for New York duo Praxis and James Franco's Museum of Non-Visible Art and Whorticulture, a novel about four migrant women in antebellum America. She is currently working on her second novel, Bouche about the artist Francois Boucher.
