Tulip Mania in 17th Century Holland Tom Flynn Monday 18 March 2019

Tom is an experienced art lecturer and teaches art history and professional practices of the international art market at a number of UK universities. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a senior lecturer at the Kingston School of Art.

This lecture wil cover the time in Holland when a flower cost more than a house. Bruegel the Elder at the beginning of the 17th centure painted tulips in oils on copper which enhanced the brightenes and intensity of colours. Tulip mania is the first example of an economic bubble and by early 1637 the market collapsed.
