Counter-Reformation, Patronage and Cultural Landscapes | Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) skip to content

Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

This day school will examine the development of Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassical art and architecture in Central Europe within its religious and social contexts. We will investigate the cultural impact of the Counter-Reformation upon this region as well as assessing other factors that motivated local patrons. In particular, we will discuss the emergence of religious and cultural landscapes, where numerous buildings were erected in close proximity to create extensive architectural schemes. Works of art and architecture will be considered within their scholarly context, focusing upon both primary and secondary sources.

This day school is one in a series of three taught day schools on the theme of “Visual Cultures of Central Europe: Germany, Hungary and Poland 1400 -1800” that form the third unit of the Diploma in History of Art: Renaissance and Baroque 2019-20.

Each of the three day schools covers a different subject topic within the wider unit theme and are being offered as separate stand alone non award bearing day schools where students will be taught alongside the existing Diploma level group.

Each of the day schools in the series is individually priced at £110 and the dates and titles of each of the day schools are given below:

Saturday 25th April 2020: The Painters, Sculptors and Architects of Central Europe

Saturday 16 May 2020: Artistic transmission across Central Europe

Saturday 6 June 2020: Counter-Reformation,  Patronage and Cultural Landscapes
