Wyvern Area Study Days 2020

Truth and Beauty in Art

An exploration of how the concept of truth and beauty in art has changed over time and between cultures. 

Study Day 1:  The Visual Art of Power and Rank at the Chinese Imperial Court.

Throughout the 2000 year history of imperial rule the Chinese Emperors utilized the visual arts to not just enhance the culture of the Empire but also as a tool that defined their power and intellectual status.

David Rosier is an accredited Arts Society lecturer and a well-known expert on the costume, culture and art of the Chinese Imperial Court.
