The Return of the Day School!

A Gloucestershire Landscape, by Paul Nash

We are pleased to announce the return of the Art History Day School - back by popular demand!

We have recently held a couple of illuminating and well-attended day-schools - Landscape and the Things Behind: The Places and Paintings of the Brothers Nash, with Dr Justine Hopkins, and From Athens to Bristol: The Parthenon Sculptures and their place at the RWA, with Dr Harriet Batten-Foster.


Cornard Wood to Fanghorn Forest: Trees in Art and Literature, with Dr Justine Hopkins

Saturday 31 January 2015

10.30am – 4.30pm, Fedden Room RWA

£30/ £25 FRWA

Trees have always caught the human imagination and nowhere more strongly than in England. In association with the Arboretum exhibition, the Day School will explore the manifestations of this literally deep-rooted fascination, from Shakespeare’s Forest of Arden to the fantastical forests of Tolkein; and from Gainsborough’s half-imaginary woodlands to the abstract creations of Ivon Hitchens and Andy Goldsworthy.
