On Sunday 25th of March, a group of fifteen Upper Sixth form artists and art historians led by Mr Wilson, Miss Sanders and Mr Murray met at Heathrow Airport and embarked on a short but intensive study trip to Rome.

Their intention was to see at first hand the many works of Roman Baroque art and architecture which form the backbone of the art historian's A2 course, and for the artists to capture these innovative artefacts in their sketchbooks.

In three days the students managed to view and analyse the buildings of ancient Rome including Trajan's Column, the Colosseum and the Pantheon, and then assess the seventeenth century's experimentation in form and style by visiting the small but intricately designed churches of S. Maria della Vittoria, S. Carlo alle Quattro Fontane and S. Andrea al Quirinale.

The group explored the Baroque's unique contribution to painting and sculpture by visiting Caravaggio's paintings in their original church locations, and appreciating Bernini's role both in shaping the atmosphere of St Peter's Basilica and his outstanding early sculptures in the Borghese Gallery. The students were a credit to the school in their behaviour and raised some interesting points of discussion during their visits to Rome's cultural landmarks.
