Landscape, Man & Memory by Art Historian, Sara Radice

Thursday, September 12, 2024 


This lecture will examine man’s physical and spiritual encounters with Nature and explore art in connection with time and place; how artists think about the elements – earth, wind, fire and water – and their role in both forming the earth beneath our feet and these works of art.

Many of the chalk landscapes are ones that Rex Whistler knew well and are depicted by his contemporaries Nash and Ravilious; other artists will include Constable, Turner and Moore, as well as contemporary artists such as Long, Parker and Gillespie. The works may be of specific places, but the essential subject often lies elsewhere. They have become, in Geoffrey Grigson’s words, ‘places of the mind’.
