Angels of the north and south - Jean Stokes’ annual Christmas lecture
Lecture | The Northumberland Club
Thursday 15 December 2016 - 12:00 until 14:30
Enjoy the annual and hugely successful Christmas talk/lunch which will have an angelic theme!
We have our Angel of the North, is there an Angel or Angels of the South? What does European art tell us about angels? Is there a discernible difference between those of the idealistic south and those of the expressionistic north? This talk will explore the visual arts from the earliest Christian depictions of angels to those of the present day and present a conclusion to this question.
This event has been organised by the Northumberland Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
