Art History Abroad
UK-based company that organizes high quality courses for students and adults who would like to know more about European art and culture. It is a company run by art historians which has grown into a curious mixture of a tutorial college and a travel company. The guiding principal is that art and architecture are most enjoyably studied when at first hand in a small group of eight or less in the company of a knowledgeable, engaging tutor. Tutors take an interdisciplinary approach to the study of art history which means we pay attention to the currents of music, history, literature and theology that flow along the broad band of culture. They specialize in Italy because there is such a wealth of significant painting, architecture and sculpture. Also, as the birthplace of the Renaissance, the home of the Roman Empire and the Catholic church, the influence of the Italian peninsular could hardly stretch further across the western world.
