The Language of Art

Interpretation is a key process in the appreciation of paintings and can be considerably enhanced by understanding the symbolism and sources inimical to their production. This programme will open a new field of selective perception for those who are interested in looking deeper into art history. Ideal for anyone wishing to broaden their outlook, or refresh their ability to read paintings.

The Story of French Art

This programme traces the development of French Art from the origins of the French Academy in the 17th century, through to the State relinquishing control of the Salon Exhibitions in the late 19th century. The illustrated talks encompass the works of the many great artists who straddled this time span, from the court painters of Louis X1V until the post Impressionists times. THIS BREAK WILL BE RUN TWICE - once in early January and again in late January.
