TALK for International Women’s Day: A Hidden History of Women in Art: From the Renaissance to the Enlightenment

Learn about incredible women in art

From the Renaissance onwards, artists became celebrities. Names such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rembrandt and our very own Joseph Wright are familiar to us all, but what about their female contemporaries? Why do we not know their names and why is their work less celebrated? More recent artists such as Frida Kahlo and Tracy Emin have gained recognition, but their predecessors are still hidden in the shadows of history. This talk by Sue Argyll will introduce some of these brilliant women and their work.

Suitable for young people and adults.

Booking essential.
