British Baroque: Power and Illusion

British society, paintings in the style of baroque were a way of expressing one’s status and power. The C17th saw challenges to both crown and church and art became a method through which they could reaffirm their eminence. From the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 to the death of Queen Anne in 1714, a time of significant change for Britain, we will look at the splendour of the art of artists such as Peter Lely, Godfrey Kneller and James Thornhill.

 

The cost is £22.00. To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.
