Illustrated talks with David Lowe
7.15pm - 8.45pm
Suggested donation £5/£3 concessions
We will be looking at two artists from the
early Renaissance, and one from the late
1800s. The talk will be followed at a later
date by a visit to the National Gallery.
Paolo Uccello (1397 to 1475).
Uccello was part of the development of
art in Florence, through the 1400s. We are
fortunate to have some of his paintings here
in London and in excellent condition.
Jan Van Eyck (1390 to 1441).
This artist's influence on the pre-Raphaelites
was the theme of a National Gallery
exhibition centering on the painting, the
Arnolfini Wedding. We will be looking at
this and other examples of Van Eyck's work
including the magnificent Ghent altarpiece.
George Seurat (1859 to 1891).
The development of pointillism had a strong
influence on Seurat and the Impressionists.
His painting, The Bathers, is a significant
presence in the Impressionists rooms in
the National Gallery. We will be looking at
his most celebrated painting, Sunday at La
Grande Jatte, as well as his drawings and
