From Amy: Masterpieces Community Zoom

Wednesday 13th January at 2pm

Italy: These Masterpieces were created in Italy, in various artistic centres and over a period of two hundred years. Bringing together this great range of painting evokes something of the first displays at Buckingham Palace, during the reign of George III.

Several strands of Italian art will be explored. There are sober male portraits, often painted with a bare minimum of detail and colour range, but conveying great psychological intensity.

There are ideal female figures, derived from the study of antique sculpture, their beauty impassive however dramatic the narrative. There are expressive landscapes, ranging from a cataclysmic storm to the unruffled stillness of a sunset. Then there are Canaletto’s boldly expressive views of Venice, where the imposing monuments of the city are spiced with a hint of picturesque shabbiness.

The Zoom link is the same for last month, email me if you did not attend January’s talk
