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.
