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 3: European Art - Influences on perceptions of value.

2: Japanese History; Art and Culture. 

A relatively new Arts Society lecturer, DrChantal Brotherton-Ratcliffe, trained as a painting conservator and worked for 30 years at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, teaching on the MA in Fine and Decorative Arts. 

In our third specially constructed Study Day, Chantal will talk to us about how the social and political context in which European Art was produced both influenced the artists and defined perceptions of value. 

She will also explain how experts can tell the difference between one artist and another and discuss the role of assistants and copyists within the studio of a master painter.  

Chantal will additionally examine how the value of workshop pieces, collaborative works and straightforward copies has fluctuated from art centre to art centre, and from century to century.

Time: 10.30am - 3.30pm
