Event description

Description

When we study the vast range of works of art produced during the 16th century, nearly all seem to have been commissioned, paid for and created by men. Yet in more recent years, historians have found more evidence of women acting independently. Walters asks what kind of women were able to commission works of art, how active were female painters during the period and what can these depictions of women tell us about their place in society?

Includes coffee/tea and biscuits.

This is the 1st lecture in a series exploring aspects from 500 years of painting. You might also like to consider these lectures:-
