How Architects and Artists Were Trained in the 19th Century

March 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

From the Renaissance to the late nineteenth century, becoming an architect meant mastering a broad base of skills in collaboration with painters and sculptors throughout Europe that became the basis for their training today. Dr. Micah Christensen will explore three major building projects from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries to illustrate how architects were trained and influenced in their work.

Dr. Micah Christensen received his Masters of Fine Arts from Sotheby’s Institute and his PhD in the History of Art from University College. As an art historian, he has worked closely with museums and archives throughout Europe and is now based in Utah, where he is a partner at Anthony’s Fine Art.
