Talk 3: The Post-Impressionists, November 2nd, 7.30pm
This lecture explores when the artist no longer feels obliged to depict a “realistic” representation of the world but instead creates a personal vision in which colour and brush work are used as a means of expression.
Talk 4: Matisse, Fauvism and Expressionism, November 9th, 7.30pm
In this lecture Raphael discusses when the flat surface of the painting becomes all important as the artist turns away from depicting the illusion of three dimensional space and concentrates instead on the expression of emotions.
