DESCRIPTION

This two-week school, based on the vast collections of the State Hermitage museum, will study the art patronage of the Romanovs from the early XVIII to the early XX centuries with the stress on the Netherlandish art collecting. The teaching will include "Days In" with lectures on the history of collecting tracing personal artistic tastes of Emperors of the Romanov House, and workshops in the particular collections of the Hermitage, alternating with "Days Out" visits to Imperial residences in St. Petersburg and its suburbs.
The course offers unprecedented access to art treasures usually not available to the public as well as opportunities to discuss issues concerning a given collection with its museum curator.
Participants may use the Hermitage library and the University computer facilities.
Additional cultural program (visits to the theaters and concert halls, etc.) can be offered at participants' expenses.
