CASTLES, TAPESTRIES, AND ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS: ENGLISH AND SCOTTISH ART HISTORY FROM ANTIQUITY THROUGH THE RESTORATION
Chris Fasolino
Beginning with ancient Britain, students will explore the building of Stonehenge, arrival of Caesar, rise of Londinium (London), and the mineral springs of Bath. Next is the Middle Ages, including illuminated manuscripts and elegant tapestries, with their colorful animal imagery, along with historic architectural sites like the Tower of London and Edinburgh Castle. The Renaissance sees a new emphasis on painting, as artists like Holbein and Van Dyck are welcomed in the royal courts. The Renaissance “cast of characters” includes such figures as Mary, Queen of Scots; Henry VIII; Elizabeth I; and William Shakespeare. Lastly, students will see how artists recorded the English Civil War, when a king was executed and the crown prince fled for his life, hiding in forests and seeking refuge on the continent until he could reclaim the throne.
