Event description
Join us as we discover the important role materials and their techniques play in our understanding and enjoyment of Art.

About this Event

We are familiar with paintings being described as oils on canvas or tempera on panel, but we might be surprised to discover the importance of this sticky stuff to the history of art. Buon fresco allowed artists to decorate the vast new Christian basilicas and Renaissance palaces. Tough egg tempera was ideal for altar panels. Rich gouache was the perfect paint for illuminations on vellum and paper. Without oils the Mona Lisa would not be mysterious, without modern processes Impressionism would never have existed, and Jackson Pollock could not have 'splashed and dripped' without industrial car paints.

Now working as a freelance lecturer in the History of Art, Lynne Gibson originally trained as a fine artist and has taught painting, drawing and printmaking in higher and adult education. She lectured as an art historian for the universities of Sussex and Bristol where she introduced 'Understanding Art' to the Lifelong Learning programme and residential summer schools. She gives talks, lectures and guided tours to a wide range of organisations and institutions including the National Trust, National Gallery, art museums and art societies. She has worked as a professional artist specializing in oil painting and etching. Solo and group shows have included the RWA, British Museum and the Barbican.
