Friday 12 November 2021 – Women in art: Gentileschi to Emin

Lecturer: Lynne Gibson

Booking Months: To be confirmed
Cost:  To be advised
Location:  Letcombe Regis Village Hall, OX12 9LJ

Until the 1970s, an Art History student could well believe there were no women artists in the entire history of Western Art. Research over the past few decades has changed the subject of Art History and the Art we see in galleries and museums. This lecture will discover Old Mistresses and look at contemporary women artists from Artemesia Gentileschi to Tracey Emin.

William Morris (1834-1896) was the single most influential designer of the nineteenth century. When he was dying, his physician said “He is dying of being William Morris, of having lived the life of ten men in the body of one”. This Study Day takes a look at the man behind the famous floral designs.
