ART HISTORICAL LONDON : Rural vs Urban, art produced between 1850 and 1950 - America

This series of 3 lectures will compare Romantic, rural art with the Modern, urban art produced in Britain, France and America between 1850 and 1950. Each lecture will examine how artists responded to modernity in London, Paris and New York by either embracing new social orders and cultural developments or by retreating into the pre-industrialised countryside as a form of escapism.

12/5/17: Britain 19/5/17: France 26/5/17: America

Essential Summer prep for any one expecting to include culture in their travels! With this 4 week course we take it back to where it all started: The Italian Renaissance!

One of the most productive, innovative, influential and thought-provoking periods in the history of Western art, this period has shaped how we feel about art and all later generations of artists.

  2. 16/6/17: Power, Patronage and Ideology
  3. 23/6/17: Artists, materials and processes

ART HISTORICAL LONDON : Playful illusions: mirrors in art

All art is illusionistic by nature. Most artists use illusionary techniques to depict reality, but some use illusions to depict the illusionary nature of art and perception. We as the viewers are sometimes, but not always, aware of what we are looking at is real, a depiction of the real, a reflection of the real, a symbolical version of the real or if we ourselves are the illussion!

This series of lectures will explore the perception of form and meaning through a number of works of art, chosing a different theme each week.

  1. 6/6: Playful illusions: mirrors in art (NB tying in with the upcoming exhibition: Reflections: Van Eyck and the Pre-Raphaelites, at the National Gallery in October 2017)
  2. 13/6: Playful illusions: dressing up
  3. 20/6: Playful illusions: picturing the dead
  4. 27/6:Playful illusions: trompe l'oeil
