Location: ❑ Estelle Lovatt : How artists change art history

Estelle Lovatt’s illustrated lecture, How Artists Change Art History guides you through the fascinating world of master artists and art history, unlocking the iconic ideas and creative methods behind some of the greatest artworks ever. Reviewing the ways successful artists have changed the course of art history period after period, -ism after -ism, she will look at artistic visionaries from the Renaissance to Contemporary Art ranging from Leonardo, Rembrandt, Manet, to Rothko, Picasso and Emin amongst others – too many to mention. And not forgetting the first moon landing in 1969, an unmade bed, a floating shark and that pile of bricks, of course!
