Event description

Description

The 18th century was a pivotal moment for landscape painting in Britain. With no native tradition to speak of, the demand for landscapes among British collectors was almost entirely met by artists from the continent in the early 1700s. By the end of the century, a flourishing British school was established, boasting some of the world’s finest exponents of the genre. This lecture by Peter Moore traces that story. 

Includes coffee/tea and biscuits.

 

This is the 3rd lecture in a series exploring aspects from 500 years of painting. You might also like to consider these lectures:-
