2+4: Art and Fiction

2+4: Art and Fiction (new)

CH Mondays 1400-1600 weekly from 15th Jan (8 sessions)

Convener: Dorothy Goldman

Over eight weeks we will look at two novels and four short stories, all of us which, one way or another, concern painting. How can the written word incorporate the visual? What uses does fiction put art to?

Each of the novels: How to Be Both by Ali Smith and Chatterton by Peter Ackroyd, will be discussed over two weeks, and each of the short stories—

"The Limner" (Julian Barnes), "Rembrandt's Hat" (Bernard
Malamud), "A Lamia in the Cevennes" (A S Byatt) and "The Real Thing"
(Henry James)—will take one.

Members should be able to find copies of the novels quite easily, and all the short stories can be found in
Stories of Art and Artists
(ed. Diana Secker Tesdell, Everyman's Pocket Classics, 2014). I will bring copies of the stories for those who do not wish to purchase Stories of Art and Artists.

We will begin in January with How to be Both; before then
please read the section illustrated with an eye, not with a camera.
