Event Details

This lecture, by art historian Paula Nuttall, looks at two of the most influential early Flemish painters: Rogier van der Weyden (c1399-1464) and Hans Memling (c1430-94). Van der Weyden’s masterpiece is arguably The Descent from the Cross (c1435) in the Prado, Madrid. His legacy can be seen in the work of Memling, who moved to Flanders from Germany, where he built his name painting both portraits and diptychs for personal devotion and several large religious works.

 

This is one of a series of six talks which explore Dutch and Flemish art, from Jan van Eyck to Johannes Vermeer; you may also like to consider:

Jan van Eyck, by Geoffrey Nuttall

Hieronymus Bosch, by Leslie Primo

The Magic of Vermeer, by Eveline Eaton

Rembrandt’s Light, by Jennifer Scott

London Events Fundraising Committee, Art Fund

Art Fund London Events Fundraising Committee are a team of dedicated volunteers who organise a quarterly programme of London-based events to raise money for the Art Fund.

 

Art Fund is the national fundraising charity for art. In the past five years alone it has given £34 million to help museums and galleries acquire works of art for their collections. It also helps museums share their collections with wider audiences by supporting a range of tours and exhibitions, and makes additional grants to support the training and professional development of curators. Art Fund is independently funded, with the core of its income provided by 139,000 members who receive the National Art Pass and enjoy free entry to over 320 museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, as well as 50% off entry to major exhibitions and subscription to Art Quarterly magazine. In addition to grant-giving, Art Fund’s support for museums includes Art Fund Museum of the Year (won by the Hepworth Wakefield in 2017) and a range of digital platforms.
