Art Appreciation

Monthly 2nd Tuesday 10.00am

The Group studies art history up to the beginning of the 20th century. We focus on a theme for a September-to-June programme, such as Dutch and Spanish Golden Ages, French painting, Italian art, British painting and Russian art. Group members are invited to contribute, introducing an artist or theme illustrated by relevant paintings. Usually, 3 volunteers per meeting so preparation is not too onerous and we like time for discussion. We use a digital projector and screen to show pictures at meetings. It is helpful if volunteers have computer access to collect illustrations they want to show us, but this is not essential.

Our new programme runs from September 2015 to June 2016 and we'll be looking at some aspects of the development of art in Italy following the High Renaissance. This is based on a variety of themes and includes references to diverse artists and sculptors in Italy and even an architect. This 'Later Italian Art' includes mannerism, baroque, increasing interest in portraying landscape, women artists, Italian artists and the Grand Tourists, Italian artists commissioned to work elsewhere in Europe, artists from other European artists drawn to Italy.
