Framing Perspectives in Nineteenth-century ‘Picturesque’ Art / Talk by Dr Lara Eggleton

Saturday / 23 February / 3-4pm

Representations of landscapes and cityscapes can tell us a great deal about the personal and cultural perspectives that informed them. The specific ways in which monuments, figures and natural features are organised within a tripartite view (foreground, middle ground and background) often reveal multiple layers of interpretation or artistic biases.
This talk will explore the use of picturesque devices within a number of drawings, prints and paintings from the Romantic period, highlighting a particular process of ‘editing’ through which British artists and travellers negotiated their views.

Free, all welcome.
No booking necessary.
