Art History

Whether you are interested in art from the Renaissance period or prefer more contemporary art our upcoming term of Art History is for you. The theme is “Something for Everyone” a program which caters for a diverse range of interests. The lectures on Zoom will be approximately an hour and a half long (including time for discussion) and will be given by Art Historian Lucrezia Walker. Lucrezia is a lecturer at the National Gallery and has more than 20 years’ experience lecturing and leading art tours in major European cities.

The first session will focus on examining some of the interesting statuary in Hyde Park, both commemorative and others such as the Henry Moore. The second session will concentrate on statues old and new from Parliament Square to Trafalgar Square including the Burghers of Calais by Rodin.

Other sessions will focus on various prominent artists whose works are being exhibited over the autumn and winter such as Hogarth, Durer, Paula Rego, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Poussin, Rodin and Yayoi Kusama. With a focus on current exhibitions we will be well informed about the various artists before visiting the exhibitions and then be able to have follow up discussions about what we have seen. This varied program which combines old and new, men and women, painting, installations and sculpture caters for everyone.

Each of the 10 sessions will be at 11 am commencing on Thursday 9th September, with a two week break after the 14th October. We will then resume our sessions on the 4th November.

The cost for the 10 week term is £180.00 or £18 per session for 5-10 sessions payable in full before the start of the term.  If you are unable to commit to the full term individual sessions can be purchased for £20 on the AWC website. If you purchase individual sessions please email us so that we can send the Zoom link to you.
