This exclusive program, which lasts one academic year, is a highly specialized artistic master's degree for training in the practice of figurative and realistic painting, a fundamental starting point for the creation of unprecedented pictorial images, which investigate, interpret and highlight the importance of facts, both past and present, of the history of Spain.
Participants will learn how to successfully carry out narrative and historical painting projects from Augusto Ferrer-Dalmau, promoter of the program and example in Spain of a pictorial genre, that of history and military painting.
Augusto Ferrer-Dalmau Nieto (Barcelona, January 20, 1964) is a Spanish painter with a realistic and academic style, specializing in history and battle painting. In many cases, he portrays various aspects and periods of the Spanish Armed Forces with great naturalism and attention to detail. He is a member of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary (Seville) and has received numerous distinctions and awards, including the Order of Isabella the Catholic.Read Less

In this first edition, a maximum of 15 participants will enjoy a personal space as a studio, with free access outside school hours, both during the week and on weekends.
More than 17 editions of the Master's Degree in Art Market and Related Business Management, a pioneer in the Spanish university environment, with 5 editions promoting contemporary art through the Nebrija Acquisition Awards, endorse the development and specialization of the Department of Arts, which includes the Bachelor's Degrees in Fine Arts, Digital and Multimedia Design, Fashion Design and Performing Arts.

The faculty includes active artists of recognized prestige and specialized in the European pictorial tradition of the great masters, as well as art historians and academics.
Visual artists, both professional and amateur painters, lovers of painting and recent graduates of Fine Arts who wish to research and highlight the importance of relevant and significant episodes in the History of Spain through the construction of their own images.
The Master's degree offers each participant a personal space as a painting studio, with free access 24 hours a day, including on weekends, so that they can optimally carry out the required exercises, their pictorial work, and grow as artists. In this space, the participants will also receive criticism and lessons from the professors, as a professional dialogue, and will be able to dedicate quality time to the practice of painting in a privileged and exclusive environment. Both the exclusive dedication and the high artistic demand of the Master's degree will enable the student to create images applicable not only to the development of their own professional work, as a painter of portraits and historical narratives, but also in the development of contents of illustration, graphic novels, Concept Art and Graphics for videogames, as well as the creation of characters, environments and vehicles for digital animation.

I do not want to miss the opportunity, however, of adding to the importance of this new Master and the importance of what is proposed here
In the first place, because Augusto is a loyal friend of mine, and for many years I have been a privileged witness to seeing him grow and settle in his work and his life.
And secondly, because the Foundation that bears his name, which I saw rise from the first idea, is an unusual occurrence in Spain; it is something of enormous importance that will enrich the new generations of historical painters and the general public with its various activities. It will favor History, true memory, intelligence and culture, which are always so isolated, so in need, and so mistreated. Hopefully events like this are a true sign that, in this sense, times change for the better.
"For this reason, to all those who make possible the birth of Nebrija Universitys Masters Degree in History Painting Ferrer-Dalmau (in which I will have the honor of collaborating), I want to express my warmest congratulations.
To the professors, for their enthusiasm and dedication.
To the students, for their noble interest. And I must also warn them to prepare for an experience that will be enriching, hard and fascinating at the same time. Their lives, I am sure, will not be the same after this.
And to Augusto, my congratulations and friendship forever.
They, all of them, can always count on me.
Augusto Ferrer-Dalmau is among the great traditional battle painters, in the wake of Alphonse Neuville, Édouard Detaille, Jean Louis Ernest Meissonier and Josep Cusachs i Cusachs.
Nebrija University's Art Department has held over 10 editions of the Master's Degree in Art Market and Related Business Management, in a clear commitment to artistic training by the university.
