From 23 to 29 August 2015 the Amsterdam-Maastricht Summer University, the Rijksmuseum and the RKD (Netherlands Institute for Art History) will organize a 7-day course: Dutch Art of the Golden Age: Tradition and Innovation.
From the course website, 26 May 2015
The aim of this course is to give an in-depth introduction on the Rijksmuseum and the RKD. A series of lectures, presentations, workshops and excursions with prominent scholars and museum professionals will provide insights into the latest developments in Dutch art history, research and exhibition projects, as well as methodologies. A number of the sessions have been designed to encourage interactive discussion between the speakers and the course participants. There will be ample opportunity for discussion in front of the original works of art. Moreover, the participants are offered the possibility to build up a network of contacts with scholars and curators in The Netherlands.
The course is primarily intended for young museum curators, PhD candidates and professional art historians specialising in 17th-century Dutch art. There will be a maximum of 25 participants. The ability to communicate in English is required.
