Throughout this course, we will focus on the circumstances that shaped the production and reception of German art during the 19th and 20th centuries. During this long period, the formation of a German nation state and the problematic notion of a German national identity became connected to the question of a German style and artistic ‘expression’.
Are you curious to learn more about Rembrandt's 'Nightwatch', Vermeer's 'Girl with the pearl earring', Hals's 'Laughing figures' or other Dutch masterpieces from the 17th century?
