Each week students will study in-depth two works of art. The works will be by different artists who may have been contemporaries, possibly rivals, or simply members of a movement. Alternatively they may be separated by hundreds of years. The works themselves may be famous or obscure. They may share common themes or subject matter, compositional approaches, or some external link.  Students will have no prior knowledge of the works and will therefore explore the possible connections between the two works and their creators from scratch. They will have access to primary sources, other works by the artists, and critical analysis to help them discuss and formulate ideas. This study in microcosm will enable them to find out about the art world these artists worked in and how their work fits into the broader trend of art history.
