Seminar: How to Read a Painting (Part 2) View details

Art can be elusive, made up of concepts, codes and signs not always easily read or made sense of. Indeed, paintings are often impenetrable, even intimidating things; but, by taking the time to look, they can become much less so. Understanding art does, in fact, have as much to do with looking as it does with art historical study. So, for the viewer time is your friend. Paintings are usually made to be experienced on an intuitive level, so even if you are clueless about where to start, just looking at a work of art will tell you a lot about it. Artists work intuitively and the viewer too can gain much from this approach. Following on from How to Read a painting, this part two class will consider a select range of art historical methodologies to come to some understanding of the meanings and motivations behind some masterpieces and, therefore, perhaps, uncover why they are valued artifacts that people travel the world to see 'in the flesh'. Let the journey begin!

Discussing ‘Flush’, a Fictional Biography with Cath Humphris View details

Virginia Woolf's novel, Flush, published in 1933, is a biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's spaniel, who lived from 1840-54. Its direct inspiration was a new edition, in 1930, of the Brownings' love letters in which 'the figure of their dog made me laugh so I couldn't resist making him a Life.' We'll be thinking about the way this fictional biography combines fact and fiction, and considering the significance of breeding, classification and status. If you've never read Virginia Woolf before, this is an accessible introduction. If you're planning to join me in discussing AS Byatt's, 'Possession' in the Autumn term, you might like to be introduced to Elizabeth Barrett Browning in advance. On the other hand, you might just like an opportunity to discuss a novel in which a dog takes the central role. It would be useful to have read the novel before the session.
