Art historical emphases

The red line throughout the publications? Art from the Low Countries. With a special stage for the Flemish 16th- and 17th-century movement. Study the Flemish masters and their predecessors at close quarters and get a flying start in your research. Become wiser from the Italian Mantegna and Caravaggio, the German school from Dürer onwards or other European schools. Or go through necessary reference works on the history of Antwerp, mythological and esoteric literature or non-visual art forms such as music and theatre from the Flemish Baroque. The selection is broad, so you will quickly find that needle in the (structured) haystack.
