Art History and Appreciation
Group Leader: Judith Williams
Meets 1st Thursday in Month
Art History, designed for anyone sufficiently interested in Art to join a small study group in which we examine the work of a particular artist or School, with an introduction to cover the background and time spent looking at pictures.
Art Appreciation, which consists of visits to convenient Galleries to look at their collections and discuss what we have seen.
So far we have visited both BMAG and the Barber twice, and a few of us went to see the Upton House picture gallery. Our Study Groups have looked at Dutch Interiors, the Breugel family, Greek Sculpture, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. On 2nd November we plan to start on the Pre-Raphaelites, and follow where that might lead us. All are welcome, with contributions or ideas.
