Course Description

Diploma in History of European Painting

This course of approximately forty lectures provides an historical survey of European painting. It covers major periods of art such as the Italian Renaissance and French Impressionism, as well as dealing with individual artists, for example Michelangelo, Rembrandt and Cezanne. The course also provides an introduction to the critical analysis of paintings and considers such matters as the production, iconography and techniques of works of art.

In addition to the lectures, registered students attend a seminar each week, many of which are held in the National Gallery. Students are required to submit two essays and they are allowed to use the Trinity College Library. Students registered for the course are entitled to sit an examination held annually in April/May, which leads to the award of the diploma. The most successful student is awarded a travel scholarship.
