Magnificent Masterpieces 14th Century to the Present Day – Part 1 – The 14th to 16th Century

Sat 18 Jun 2016 @ 10:00 - 17:00

£82

Suitable for everyone: newcomers to art history, as well as those with a passionate interest in particular periods. Richard will introduce you to the objective, emotional and spiritual manifestations of Western art from the 14th century to the present day, exploring many aspects of paintings and sculptures through an adventure of nearly a thousand years of Western art. Not only will the techniques of fresco, tempera and oil painting be discussed, but also, the mysteries of iconography and symbolism, as well as how the changes of social, religious and cultural climates affect the styles, subjects and treatment of these marvellous masterpieces. You could say this is a cultural voyage of a lifetime, or rather, of several lifetimes! Enrol on one or both days.
