This month has been rather busy so far, hence I am a little behind with this post. Lectures to both South Lakeland and Falmouth Arts Societies earlier this month have been return visits. It is always an enormous pleasure to see familiar faces and catch up with society news.
Later in November, I will be speaking to a society much closer to home - in Cirencester - on the naughty double-entendres in seventeenth century Dutch genre painting. In December I shall be speaking about the hidden meanings in Dutch still life painting to The Arts Society in Hereford.
November brings the second study day to my regular art history group in Thornbury on the history and culture of the nineteenth century. Our focus on this day will be industrial revolution and the natural world.
In Cheltenham, our autumn term at St. Andrew's finishes on 2nd December. If you are interested in joining us next term, please keep an eye on my diary page for details. The Spring term will start on 6th January and I shall be taking bookings from late November.
