The colour red - its sacred and secular meaning, by Hilary Guise - SOLD OUT

Talk | The Wallace Collection

Thursday 18 February 2016 - 14:30 until 15:30

Red is the most exciting colour on earth, its sacred meaning rests on its closeness to the colour of blood, thus of life, love and sacrifice. It denotes sin and, conversely, love, which redeems it. In the 20th century red became synonymous with the agitprop of Communist Russia, and with revolution via Che Guevara. The esoteric meaning of red in the ‘Great Work’ of alchemy concludes this talk by Hilary Guise.

This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
