ONLINE ART HISTORY COURSE
Makers and Markets: Italian Art in Britain
This course explores how Italian art came to Britain, from the 15th century Tudors hiring sculptors to the 19th century magnates buying up paintings from Tuscan dealers. Eager to own the latest in Renaissance and Baroque art, English kings and queens filled their courts with Italian imports. Desire to expand some access to the public eventually led to the creation of the national museums in London, and we will examine how these collections were formed.
