Art and Nature with Imogen Cornwall-Jones
Wednesday 11 March @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm| Free
Come and explore the representation of nature in Western art with Imogen Cornwall-Jones, Head of History of Art at Queen’s Gate. Before her role at Queen’s Gate, Imogen lectured in the Education Departments at Tate Britain, National Gallery and British Museum for over ten years as well as teaching Art History and Contemporary Practice on the Foundation Art and Design course at Richmond Art School.
How and why has the natural world and landscape been depicted in different ways in Western painting? How does the depiction of landscape reflect our human relation to nature?
In this seminar we’ll discuss a range of representations of nature, from the middle ages to the present, exploring themes such as nature as paradise, nature as sublime and nature under threat.
