École d’été – Summer Course for the Study of the Arts in Flanders. The Age of Van Eyck in Context

From 21 June until 1 July 2020

Annually, the Summer Course brings a select group of 18 highly qualified young researchers to Flanders. They are offered an intensive 11-day programme of lectures, discussions and visits related to a specific art historical period of Flemish art.

The Summer Course provides the participants with a clear insight into the Flemish art collections from the period at hand, as well as into the current state of research on the topic. The sixth edition of the Summer Course will focus on ‘The Age of Van Eyck in Context’. Excursions will be made to Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, Leuven, Brussels, Hoogstraten, Lille, Mons and Tournai. The language of the Summer Course is English.
