Technical Art History
The new group will be orientated towards the technical aspects of works of art and what that means for different types of artistic creation, from the Paleolithic to the Post-Modern. The group can overlap with the concept of Art Appreciation as someone might like to discuss the work of a particular artist, or historical period, or the techniques used for the examination of works of art, or how we can determine if a work of art is a forgery, or how artistic practices may have evolved over time, or in some cases, stayed the same. Any materials that the member is interested in will be the subject of the group for that month. In some cases more than one topic will be discussed each month.
