History of Art 2

OBJECTIVES AND MEETINGS

The group was formed in September 2017. Our aim is to share our love of art in all its forms and examine its history. We do this by each month choosing a theme or a specific time period . Since April 2020 we have met on Zoom on the 3rd Monday of the month at 2pm. Each member chooses an aspect of the topic and gives a short (about 10 minutes) presentation to the rest of the group. An illustration of a member's chosen painting or other artwork is distributed on-line before the meeting so that everyone has the opportunity to see the work that is to be discussed.

TOPICS

Topics we have previously discussed include:

  • Art from 1900-1950
  • Rivers
  • Dutch art of the 17th century
  • Symbolism in art
  • art and nature
  • Islamic art
  • art and architecture 900-1200
  • artist groups and colonies
  • war artists
  • food and feasts

OUTINGS

We share our experiences of galleries and exhibitions.We hope to arrange more joint outings in the future.
