On Sunday 16th September, join Nick Nelson of Arcadia Education and explore with him the history of still life paintings. Learn how they first germinated in the Netherlands during the early 1600’s to the early twentieth century where Picasso pioneered cubism as a new visual language for the café culture of the Parisian avant-garde.
The notion of painting inanimate objects changes through the years as a reflection of society, from the rhopography of the Spanish bodegónes to ‘visions of plenty’ as an exaggeration of wealthy in elaborate banquet scenes. Come and explore the history of still life in art through the ages!
Arrive at 9.30am for a 10.00am start. Price includes refreshments and light lunch.
