How have artists adopted differing ideas of landscape to define and stake claim to the world around them?

This series of lunchtime lectures examines how attitudes to landscape painting have changed over the centuries. 

Lunchtime talks

Focus in on one painting with our talks in the Gallery, or explore wider themes in the collection at our in-depth theatre talks.
