In session one of a four-part course, learn about the Tudors, who ruled England between 1485 and 1603, and who are arguably the most famous and glamorous dynasty to have held the English crown.
Part of the reason for our sense of "knowing" the Tudors—especially Henry VIII and his younger daughter, Elizabeth I—is their prolific use of visual imagery.
Using a few choice selections from the Berger Collection, history professor Paul Hammer explores the political and cultural implications of some key artistic developments in sixteenth-century England, including the ways in which Henry VIII's children quite literally lived in his shadow and why images of Elizabeth I increasingly became elaborate intellectual puzzles.
Presented by Paul Hammer, professor of history, University of Colorado, Boulder
