Flemish Workshop

A brief intensive educational program for a relatively small group of people that focuses especially on techniques and skills of figurative art (more often paintings than sculptures) from fifteenth and sixteenth century Flanders, a region which covers what is now Holland and Belgium, and the surrounding areas. Influenced by the International Gothic style, and partly by Italian painting (especially from Siena), this very important trend focussed on two things: nature, which was studied in great detail (the numerous still life and landscape paintings show this); and light, which had to be realistic, and so create shadows.
