‘Treasures in Scotland’

For the past 25 years, Muzee Scheveningen has been successfully teaching art history courses. Soon a new, short course (3 meetings) will start: ‘Treasures in Scotland’. The course is taught by a first-degree lesbian art historian with more than 30 years of course experience. Art will live on the basis of keynote presentations. Prior knowledge and purchase of study material is not necessary, information sheets with a summary of the content are handed out. The course starts on Tuesday afternoon 13 March and consists of 3 meetings, on 13, 20 and 27 March from 12.30-14.15 hours and the costs are € 40, -.

The course focuses on Southwest Scotland and Glasgow. In the 19th century, Glasgow was a particularly rich city. The many shipyards along the Clyde caused economic prosperity. Thus art also flourished. The ‘Glasgow School’ consisted of several separate artist groups such as the ‘Glasgow Boys’ (realists and impressionists) and the ‘Ghost School’ (the Art Nouveau by Charles Rennie Mackintosh). There are various stately homes in rural Southwest Scotland, and there are remarkable gardens due to the mild climate. Various remarkable cultural expressions are examined in this short course.

There are still some places available, There is a parallel group in Museum Rijswijk on Monday (overtaking!). A course brochure can be requested free of charge from the lecturer, lucyhovinga@kpnplanet.nl or tel. 0181-482236 or collection at Muzee Scheveningen, Neptunusstraat 92, Scheveningen, during the opening hours of the museum: Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 12-17.
