Music and Art in Georgian Britain

  • Sotheby's Institute 30 Bedford Square London, WC1B 3AA United Kingdom (map)

Throughout history, art and music have together illuminated a myriad of social and cultural trends and movements, from Hogarth and Handel in the mid-eighteenth century to the Impressionists and Debussy in the late-nineteenth. Beginning with the Baroque, this inspiring six-week course addresses the synergy between the visual arts and music between 1600 and 1900. My sister Suzy Klein and I lecture together on the 18th century, combining the visual and auditory senses to build an understanding of the dynamic interactions between art forms in this vibrant period.
