History and Appreciation of Art

Leader: Robert Sedgley



Meet at: CPC Oliva

Meeting Dates: First Monday of the month 

4.30pm to 6.30pm beginning October.

The Group Meetings will be divided into three sections:

1) A chronological survey of western art.

Eg, Pre historic and antique, Classical Greek and Roman, Medieval and Pre Renaissance, Italian Renaissance, High Renaissance and Venetian, Northern (Flemish and German), Post Renaissance (Mannerism, Baroque and Rococo), British Art, Eighteenth and Nineteenth century France etc. Impressionists and early development of modern art. 

This is an immense field so it would be only a brief glance at each period. It would be treated in a very flexible manner so if members wished to spend more or less time on any specific period or artist this could be accommodated. There will inevitably be more gaps in the fabric than covering material. 

2) Taking a theme from the period covered we compare how artists of other times or cultures have dealt with the topic. 

3) A member will present a work from any time or place which interests/mystifies/attracts/repels them and would like to talk about, and get everyone else talking about.
