Thursday 13 December

A wonderfully visual writer, Dickens’ writing developed out of a tradition where illustrations formed a significant part of both serial and book. He had long and close friendships with several artists, including Clarkson Stanfield, Daniel Maclise, Frank Stone, Augustus Egg, William Powell Frith and John Everett Millais, despite Dicken’s derogatory comments about Millais’ early painting 'Christ in the House of his Parents', 1849-50.

 

During our Study Morning, we will explore how Dickens and his writing influenced Victorian artists who depicted scenes from his novels or drew inspiration from his subjects and characterisations.

 

The cost for the day is £25.00, which includes refreshments and  parking.

Women Artists of the Renaissance: Looking at the astounding works by women working in an age of huge cultural shifts which saw a number of secular female artists gaining international reputations. We shall be looking at:

 

Sofonisba Anguissola, one of the few female Renaissance artists who has received global recognition for her contribution to art. Born in Cremona in northern Italy, Anguissola was known to have travelled around Italy—even earning praise from Michelangelo—before arriving at the Spanish Court, where she painted portraits of King Philip II and his family.  Anguissola’s technically advanced paintings didn’t just push boundaries within the genre of portraiture; they attacked Renaissance conventions of the “woman as object”, and

 

Levina Teerlinc, born in Bruges to the renowned artist Simon Bening, known for his illuminated manuscripts, Teerlinc mastered a unique facet of Flemish Renaissance portraiture: She was a prolific miniaturist. Her meticulously crafted portraits and scenes of 16th-century life caught the eye of King Henry VIII, who invited Teerlinc to live in England as their court painter, succeeding the late Hans Holbein, who had been paid a notably lower salary.
