Following the success of our June and October Zoom talks on Architecture and local history, we are now running a series of richly illustrated Zoom talks on Art, starting Tuesday 5th of January. This are talks on Art History and Appreciation, where we will explore some of the most famous old master artists from Giotto to Vermeer, and beyond. We think many of our guest will really enjoy and savour these talks. We also think they could make a perfect Christmas gift for any family-members or friends who’ve always been an art lover.
The first talk starts at the birth of the Renaissance, with Giotto. In the following weeks we will look and talk our way through Masaccio, Donatello, Fra Angelico, Jan van Eyck, Botticelli, Raphael, Caravaggio, Jan Vermeer, Canaletto and many more.
Along the way we’ll meet these legendary artists in history and get to grips with their astonishing achievements. We’ll learn about their lives and artistic context, try to see and understand them as their contemporaries first did, and try comprehend the impact their art made in its own time, and the influence it exerted thereafter.
Single Tickets can be purchased for any of the individual talks, or Combined (and discounted) Tickets for a whole block of either 5 or for all 10 Talks. See more below. For no extra charge, it’s also possible to watch and listen to the talk on a recorded version, available from the following day and for 6 additional days after. (Using the same ticket/s)
