Members’ talk and Q&A
Conflict is an inevitable part of human experience and, therefore, art.
Taking three very different paintings as a starting point for discussion, Educators Caroline Smith, Belle Smith and Katy Tabard will explore what they reveal, not just about physical conflicts, but also moral, social and personal dilemmas.
The three paintings being discussed are:
- Giordano’s Perseus and Phineas turning his Followers to Stone
- Wright of Derby’s Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump
- Mignard’s Marquise de Seignelay and Two of Her Sons.
