Discover the deeper meaning hidden in the work of paintings of the past. Learn how to read the secrets of different objects, forms, shapes and colours included on the canvas. As the centuries passed, a language of symbols developed so that artists could tell stories with deeper and more intricate emphasis.
This lecture will cover a wide range of classical European art of diverse kinds and origins, and examine the fascinating and complex range of different symbols no longer recognised by modern audiences, making it easier for you to interpret works of art.
‘Symbolism, Iconography and the Hidden Meaning in Art’ will take place on Thursday 11 January at 8pm.
