From Rembrandt to
Rubens -Amsterdam to
The mention of Belgium and The
Netherlands brings to mind images of
windmills, canals, dikes, and wooden
shoes. Thiscompact region, smaller
than West Virginia, offers remarkable
contrasts and variety exemplified by
the contrasts between Rubens and
Rembrandt. Just as these two artists
were contemporaries, the two
countries' histories are strongly linked.
However, the divergences in language.
cuisine, art and culture make this a
fascinating region to explore. The
participant will become familiar with
the historic locales and monuments
which played such an important part in
their histories, especially the 16-17th
centuries. From Rembrandt's home to
Rubens' Italianate villa, the canals of
Amsterdam to medieval Bruges, the
windmills of Kinderdijk to the
battlefield of Waterloo, you will explore
the cultural wealth and variety of these
two countries.
