Event description

Description

In his influential essay The Painter of Modern Life (1863), the poet and art critic Charles Baudelaire described his ideal artist going out into the city to seek out new subjects for art: a “flâneur”, or “passionate spectator”, rejoicing in the experience of the crowd. Taking this essay as a starting point, this lecture explores celebrated paintings of Parisian life by artists including Manet, Degas, Renoir and Cassatt.

Includes coffee/tea and biscuits.

This is the 4th in a series of lectures exploring aspects from 500 years of painting. You might also like to consider these lectures:-
