Prospective Students

History of Art

There's no substitute for looking at the real objects and we take full advantage of Cambridge's outstanding resources, such as the Fitzwilliam Museum with its picture conservation department, Kettle's Yard and the fantastic art collections in each of the Colleges. Trinity Hall's central location is a great bonus, just a few minutes' walk away from most of these.

Trinity Hall's own art collection is varied and extensive, and in recent years the College has staged exhibitions by highly regarded modern and contemporary artists, such as Barbara Rae, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, and Helene Fesenmaier.

The College's Jerwood Library is always well stocked with the books required for the course. The History of Art Faculty Library houses a rich collection of books, and you have access to the University Library and the Fitzwilliam Museum Library (among others) as well.

During vacations, travel is encouraged and the College offers generous financial support for travel associated with vacation projects.
