The ANU School of Art’s Centre for Art History and Art Theory has been awarded funding for ten Endeavour Mobility Grants to assist students enrolling in the 2016 in-country course ‘Art of the European Courts, 1500-1815’. The Endeavour Mobility Grants, valued at $2,000 each, will subsidise travel costs for ten students enrolled in the course.
Led by Dr Robert Wellington, the course is a two-week intensive of 12 full teaching days on-site in Paris and Rome. Students will study Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassical art, design and architecture, looking at many of the great masterpieces of the early modern period and exploring the images and objects that defined the courtly aesthetic of that time.
