The Story of European Art (10 Week Course)

The return of the popular ten-week course exploring painting, sculpture, architecture, and their context from the Middle Ages to the modern day. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to ‘read’ painting, understand architecture, or appreciate sculpture then this course could be for you. Featuring famous names and lesser-known gems, by the end of this course you will know your Rubens from your Rothko, Manet from Monet, and Giotto from Gainsborough.

Led by experienced Art Historian Morgan Haigh MA of The Courtauld Institute of Art, London. For several years he was a tour guide at Cardiff Castle, and has guided tours at the National Gallery, Tate Gallery, National Gallery of Art Washington DC, and V&A. He recently appeared on the BBC’s ‘University Challenge’.

“Morgan leaves your longing for more! A course suitable for beginners, those who know a little and those who know a lot. Interesting anecdotes, fascinating art, and a totally non-stuffy presentation.”- Previous attendee.

“Morgan is outstanding- knowledgeable, passionate, articulate, engaging and a superb communicator. Difficult to overpraise his skill in conveying 1500 years of European art in ten two-hour classes and holding the attention of his audience every step of the way.”- Previous attendee
