Members' talk and Q&A
Ruins evoke meditations on past, present and future. As we wander amid the vestiges of old walls, staircases and fireplaces, smelling damp moss and touching weathered stone, we think about those who once lived, our own experiences, and what will be.
In this talk, Dr Christina Bradstreet contemplates the beauty of ruins, and explores how they have inspired poets, writers and artists from Guardi and Bellotto to Corot and Leighton.
After the talk, Christina will be happy to answer your questions in a live Q&A.
