Graduate programs in Fine and Decorative Art from Sotheby's Institute

The Master’s degree in Fine and Decorative Art and Design derives from the oldest program at Sotheby's Institute of Art, which started in 1969. It offers an integrated study of fine and decorative art and design based on case studies drawn from the late Renaissance through to the latetwentieth century. These studies are used as lenses through which to examine the production and materiality of art objects, and to consider aspects of consumption, including patronage and collecting and the historical and contemporary art market. Sotheby's Institute of Art in London is accredited by The University of Manchester, and offers world-class education across a variety of art world disciplines. 15-week Semester courses in Decorative Arts and Design also offered at the London campus.
