Our course begins with an examination of what the patron in the ancient world expected of his artist, and then fasts forward to the late Middle Ages and Renaissance, north and south of the Alps, with artists such as Van Eyck, Memling and Holbein, to explore how and why the relationship between the two changed. Finally we study how the royal image of the 16C and 17C developed in paint, medal and miniature, both in Britain and in Europe, under the influence of some major artists, among them Hilliard, Van Dyck, Raphael, and Titian.
