STUDY DAY                                                                                                                           The new 2013 series of Art Appreciation sessions (led by myself) starts with a STUDY DAY on ‘What is a Painting?’ on Thursday 28th February, 10.30am to 3.30pm.  We shall explore the different elements which contribute to a painting as a work of art – from the materials used in production through to presentation and context and on to subject matter and meaning.   As with all the Ashmolean Art Appreciation sessions taken by myself the aim is to explore and better understand and appreciate the works in the Ashmolean Collection.

AFTERNOON SESSIONS                                                                                                 The next four week series is on ‘Exploring the Modern Collection’.  This takes place in March on Wednesday afternoons, 2pm to 4pm. Following on from previous series this continues on to the ‘Modern’ period using the Ashmolean collections.  Our concern is to explore what is meant by ‘modern art’ as opposed to ‘Contemporary Art’ and will explore its origins in Impressionism and onward to the mid twentieth century. Work hanging on the gallery walls will be supplemented by works, particularly works on paper and prints, in the reserve collection.

    May I simply just say what a comfort to uncover somebody that actually understands
    what they’re talking about on the web. You certainly realize how to bring
    an issue to light and make it important.
    More and more people must check this out and understand this side of
    the story. It’s surprising you are not more popular
    given that you certainly have the gift.
