Gail-Nina Anderson's art lectures at Newcastle's Literary and Philosophical Society resume in the autumn with a special talk on Paul Nash, on Wednesday 27th September at 6.00 pm, timed to coincide with the exhibition of Nash's painting at the Laing Art Gallery.
Innovative within a tradition, the inter-war landscapes of Paul Nash (1889-1946) define a very British mode of Romantic Modernism, while the works he produced in response to two world wars have given us humane and oddly lyrical images of terrifying devastation.
This will be followed by a triad of lectures on Victorian Parlour Favourites - see the Talks and Lectures page for more details.
Autumn also brings a new series of talks in the atmospheric setting of Newcastle's Castle. Although these are more folklore-based than the talks Gail-Nina gives at the Lit & Phil, all these lectures are illustrated throughout and approach their topics via visual imagery. See what is coming up on the Talks page - or for a full list of events, not all of which feature Gail-Nina, visit the Castle's What's On listings.
