This lecture is timed to mark World Oceans Day, and will feature images of floods, of water and of oceans as metaphor and as sites of trade and conquest. Works will be selected from the broad tradition of western European art, including the Italian renaissance, the seventeenth century Dutch Republic, Turner’s depictions of the seafaring elements of the industrial revolution, and the more recent understanding of the sea as a site of migration and displacement in contemporary art.
What you will discover:
• Key insights into understanding and interpreting seascapes
• Knowledge of key artists and masterpieces
• Growing confidence in discussing works of art
