Land: Art and Landscape

Time/Date - 11:00 - 12:00, Tue 26 Sep 2017 - Tue 5 Dec 2017

A 10 week lecture series by Amanda Croft on artistic responses to land and landscape.

Land has been cultivated, manipulated and transformed by man for millennia and artists have depicted, interpreted and re-presented the aesthetic construct of ‘landscape’ for generations.

This series of illustrated talks will examine how painters, photographers, sculptors and architects have responded to the relationship between land and landscape from the Renaissance landscapes of Leonardo, Bellini and Giorgione and the Arcadian idylls of Claude and Poussin to the agrarian and leisured views of Constable and Turner, Courbet, Millet and the Impressionists; the photographic investigation of  borders and contested spaces by Wylie and Seawright, and the physical  interventions of Richard Long and Andy Goldsworthy, Christo, James Turrell and Charles Jencks.
