We have really enjoyed the past four weeks on this journey through modern sculpture. We hope you’ve learned more about the University of York sculpture collection and the history of modern sculpture.

Art history is a diverse and wide-ranging subject that covers art from across the globe and from the ancient world to the present-day. Studying art history can equip you with a number of transferable skills including being able to communicate complex ideas, confront and interrogate widely-held assumptions and carry out original and independent investigative projects.

We really hope that many of you will be inspired to go on and study History of Art in more depth in the future! There are a range of programmes on offer within the Department of History of Art at the University of York and we’d be delighted to help you with any future study queries.
