Painted love: Picasso's portraits
Lecture | Great Hall
Wednesday 18 January 2017 - 13:45 until 16:30
A lecture by Daphne Lawson, recently retired lecturer in Art History at the Herstmonceux Castle campus of Queen's University Canada. This talk examines the relationship between the artist and his muse and is designed to accompany the National Portrait Gallery exhibition Picasso Portraits. For Picasso, a new lover meant a new style, and through his portraits of Fernandez Olivier, his wife Olga Khokhlova, Dora Maar and Marie-Therese Walter the changing nature of his portraiture is explored.
For those who have seen the exhibition the lecture will be an opportunity to reassess its content; for those yet to go, the talk will be a chance to plan and prepare.
The lecture will be followed by an informal but delicious Danny House tea.
This event has been organised by the Sussex Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
