Event description

Description

We are pleased to welcome our speaker Antony Buxton to this our second ADFAS evening talk.

Antony lectures on the history of art, architecture and design, and material and domestic culture for the Department for Continuing Education, University of Oxford and other British and American institutions of higher education.

His topic is ‘The home’ as the place of the most intimate experiences of life and personal identity is a significant subject in the art of many periods.

As the nature and view of domestic life has altered over the past centuries so too has the symbolic role of the home in art, from the virtuous context for religious narratives in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, to the portraiture of polite society in the eighteenth, moral posturing in the nineteenth and new concepts of the home and family in the twentieth century.
