Elsewhere in the wider world, influential new painting has emerged from eastern Europe and China. Gaining a new relevance and focus, the discipline is viewed as a rich, complex language of its own.

Outward looking in attitude, this master’s course will encourage you to learn first-hand about painting and the art world in major British, European and worldwide centres.
