Venue: The London Beach Hotel, Tenterden, Kent (website)
Time: Tuesday afternoon 3.30 p.m. – 5..30 p.m. and Tuesday evening 6.30 p.m. – 8.30 p.m. Both sessions include a short break for refreshments.
Covering the work of artists such as Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Georges Seurat and Paul Cezanne, this course of ten lectures will examine how in the second half of the nineteenth century French painters attempted to find new subjects for art, new techniques for depicting those subjects, and new ways of explaining what art might actually be for, when art was no longer dedicated to the glorification of church or state.
The lectures will be a chance for participants to re-visit and discuss some very famous works of art, and to become acquainted with some lesser known, but equally exciting images from a crucial period in the development of ‘modern art’.
