THE ART STORY: LECTURES ON ART HISTORY
The Art Story Course continues with Term Two of weekly lectures. Starting on 11 January 2018 to March 22 2018. Spaces are available, book early with reception.
From Jacques-Louis David to Marina Abramović
You will never experience an art exhibition in the same way again…
If you are an art lover without formal art training, who wants to learn more about your favourite artists in an informal setting, our course may be a perfect fit for you. One hour weekly morning lectures, accompanied by coffee, will take place at Grace Belgravia.
During the year, we will take you on a journey of discovery covering more than two centuries of art, from the 18th century neoclassical world of Jacques-Louis David to the contemporary artists of the 21st century. Together we will visually enter the artists’ worlds, their stories and their secrets. Provoking discussion, we will query why deaf Goya painted himself so many times and whether Louise Bourgeois was afraid of spiders. We will adventure through different time periods getting lost in the world of colour and new mediums whilst learning about some of the most prolific artists the world has ever seen.
The lectures are led by Dr. Jacqueline Cockburn, an art historian with 20 years of lecturing experience at Westminster School, V&A and Christie’s Education and Anna Moszynska, an art historian and writer (“Abstract Art” & “Sculpture Now” books), who founded the MA in Contemporary Art at Sotheby’s Institute of Art as well as other acclaimed expert lecturers.
