A series of illustrated lectures looking at the astonishing breadth and depth of British Art from the Neolithic to the World of Tomorrow. Of course we look at popular favourites such as Hogarth and Stubbs, Constable and Turner, Burne-Jones and David Hockney, Wyndham Lewis and Francis Bacon, but we will take time to seek out the lost and hidden treasures which are the work of artists such as John Duncan, William Orpen, Nicholas Hilliard, Maria Cosway, Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale, Gwen John, and many more..... a revelation of sorts.
From Monday the 19th of February until the morning of Friday
the 23rd of February 2024.
Abandon any misconceptions - yes it can be cold, and yes it's the Land of the Midnight Sun, but the art can be a startling and brilliant revelation. Edvard Munch is just one of the geniuses in question, and his all-singing, all-dancing new museum in Oslo provides a fitting testament to this. Join me in this expedition of discovery ( don't worry, we probably won't have to eat the sled-dogs ).
