9 - 13 July and 16 - 20 July

Following the fifth successful summer school at the Courtauld Institute, we will again be offering twelve intensive one-week courses on the history of art and architecture. The subjects range from ancient Roman portraiture to modern art in London. Each course, taught in small groups by Courtauld Institute staff and other experts, combines lectures with visits to galleries, museums and historic buildings, often with special access to collections or areas not normally open to the public.
