Speaker: Martin Beek
Wed 20th September 2pm - 3:15pm UK time
You are invited to experience a taste of Ardington at this FREE ArtTalk with Martin Beek.
Edwin Landseer was the most famous English painter of his generation. This talk will cover his long and interesting career; from a child prodigy to producing the most accomplished studies of animals since George Stubbs.
Martin looks at his paintings of Scotland and the court of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria. It will become clear during this talk that some of Landseer's finest work is not so well known in our time and deserves better recognition. Landseer's life is both tragic and inspiring, without doubt one of the nineteenth century's most remarkable artists.
Martin will provide a list of helpful books and links to further explore on a PDF following the talk via the blackboard.
The talk will last for 60 minutes, followed by an open Q&A session.
All Ardington ONLINE talks are accompanied by their own online blackboard. Helpful and easy to use, they enable students and tutors to share resources & ideas with each other – just as you would in a classroom environment. You will be sent the link to access your blackboard in the week before your talk begins and will have access for at least sixty days after the talk ends.
After the live session has finished on Zoom, we will share the link to view the recording on the blackboard. You can watch the recording as many times as you like for sixty days.
