- Thursday, 1 October 2015 - 14:30 until 15:30
This Autumn's series of lectures looks at portraiture through the ages.
The Renaissance was a period when some of the most imaginative ways of having one’s likeness recorded appeared and patrons could reinvent themselves through the visual image. Sian Walters explores the genre’s development with examples by some of the great artists of the 15th and 16th century such as Holbein, Dürer, Bellini and Titian, examining themes such as friendship, love and beauty.
