Preceding the more widely known Golden Age of Dutch art, the 16th-century was a period of rich artistic exploration. In this seminar, we will discover how artists like Pieter Breugel and Jeroen Bosch, often sadly overshadowed by the more prominent names who came after, actually ignited a humanistic revolution in art and paved the way for the Masters of the 17th century.

Real globetrotters, these 16th-century artists incorporated Influences from all over Europe into their work. They distilled the new ideas infiltrating Dutch intellectual life into some of the greatest works of art ever made in the Low Countries. In addition to the big names like Bosch and Breugel, this seminar will introduce you to some fantastic artists now only known in small circles of art historians and dealers. Hendrick Golzius, Cornelis van Haarlem, Jan van Scorel and Maarten van Heemskerck were world famous is their days, and rightfully so.

Led by art historian Sabry Amroussi, a specialist in Netherlandish art, participants will come away with a profound appreciation for this hithero neglected period in Dutch art. With his trademark enthusiasm and humor, Sabry will discuss these masters with flair and gusto.

Dr Amroussi presented so many artists and paintings unknown to me, everyone being really astounding. The session was well paced and so interesting as all of these lesser-known artists were exceptional. Love the style and pace of his presentations.
