THIRD THURSDAY OF THE MONTH ENDING APRIL 2019. NO BOOKING REQUIRED, BUT IF 6 SESSIONS ARE BOOKED IN ADVANCE, A £10 DISCOUNT APPLIES.
Consisting of a one and a half hour talk (interspersed with a 15 minute break), followed by a 15 minute discussion/questions.

Refreshments available at The Cut cafe.

This talk series examines the life and work of approximately 60 female artists. Some will be well known (for example, Madame Vigee Le Brun, Frida Kahlo), others hardly known at all (for example, Charlotte Salomon, Paula Modherson Becker – shown in illustration). The course is broadly chronological commencing with the Medieval Period and travelling through to Modernism. In order to best understand the artworks it is best to have a knowledge of the historical background so we will be looking at social, political and cultural influences too.

  1. Middle Ages & Renaissance                   7. Expressionism
  2. The Baroque Period (17th century)      8. Cornish Colonies
  3. Rococo & Neo-Classicism                       9. Abstraction
  4. Victorians & Pre-Raphaelites               10. Surrealism
  5. Impressionism & Realism                     11. Women Photographers
  6. Post Impressionism    12. Contemporary Art
