Each topic will only be discussed once with limited tickets available, book now to secure your place.

COMING UP:

FEBRUARY | ROMANTICISM

The Romantic artists of the 19th century revolutionized landscape painting. Artists such as J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) and Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) used the staggering beauty and unrelenting drama of our natural world to communicate the deepest human emotions. Reacting to the Industrial Revolution, the Romanticism movement sought to unleash the individual from the restrictions they felt the modern world brought upon society.

On February 28th, join art historian Linda Bolton as she uncovers the artistic, social, and intellectual secrets of these famous paintings, and why they are still so relevant to our 21st-century lives.

Linda Bolton is an independent art historian and lecturer, and is the author of several books on 19th and 20th-century artists and art movements. She is an adjunct professor of Art History for the University of North Carolina’s London Program, has an MA in Victorian Studies, and delivers courses and lectures for the National Gallery.

MARCH | SURREALISM

On the 26th of March, join art historian Claudia Merkle as she delves into the world of Surrealism to discover the hidden meanings behind some of the most famous Surrealist paintings by Salvador Dalí and Max Ernst among others.

Surrealism was a cultural movement that developed in the aftermath of the First World War. Influenced by Sigmund Freud’s Interpretations of Dreams and Dadaism, Surrealists sought to represent an alternative reality, one that is only accessible through our unconscious and subconscious minds. Their works are weird, dreamlike, otherworldly, and sometimes challenging, but also beautiful, fascinating, and inspiring.

Claudia Merkle is an art expert and educator at Tate, the Royal Academy, the V&A, the National Gallery, and The Design Museum in London. She has an MA in Early Christian and Byzantine, Modern and Contemporary History of Art and Sociology from the Lugwig-Maximilians-University, Munich, Germany.

JANUARY | IMPRESSIONISM

Dynamic, bright, and fleeting, Impressionism has captured the attention of audiences since its first exhibition in 1874. The paintings of Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Berthe Morisot and their contemporaries have been a core influence for artists since the nineteenth century and the Impressionists have been heralded by many as the foundation of modern art.

Hosted by highly respected art lecturer Fania Weatherby, having studied History of Art at both the University of Oxford and the Courtauld Institute of Art, Fania has lectured in major museums across Europe including the Uffizi Galleries and the Centre Pompidou, as well as being a practising artist herself.
