Art and Self-Portraiture at the Courtauld Gallery

Why is art history relevant today and how can art from the past help us understand the present? Join us at The Courtauld for a crash course in Art History.

Throughout the morning, you will discover what Art History is, find out why students choose to study it, and develop some basic visual analysis techniques. Putting this new knowledge into practice, you will then tour The Courtauld Gallery with a gallery educator, discovering The Courtauld's world-renowned collection.

The Courtauld collection is bursting with portraits, but what constitutes a portrait? Throughout the afternoon, you'll dive deeper into artworks which represent people, religion, gender, and society, in a range of styles and form.

This session will cover a mixture of History of Art and Fine Art. You need no prior knowledge of Art History to attend.

The Courtauld Gallery will provide a sandwich lunch.
