Art History of the Low Countries


Course Description

The Research Master's programme in Art History is devoted to the art and architecture of the Low Countries (Netherlands and Belgium) from the late Middle Ages to the present day.

The two-year Research Master's programme in Art History focuses on the art and architecture of the Low Countries (present-day Netherlands and Belgium), and spans the period from the late Middle Ages to the present day. You will study Netherlandish art and architecture, taking into account their international context. We invite you to critically reflect on the production of art and architecture, and the role of patronage; investigate the reasons why so many artist went abroad, and how they became agents in the international diffusion of art theory, style, and repertoire.

You will also have the opportunity to study other specific subjects that align with your own personal interests. Our close ties with major art museums and other cultural organisations both in the Netherlands and abroad mean that the academic and practical work are closely linked.

The Utrecht Programme is judged best in the field in the Netherlands by the Keuzegids Master's Selection Guide 2014.
