Making Connections with Art: Genre Paintings

Dates: Thursdays 2, 9 and 16 September 2021
Times: 18.00–19.45 BST
Location: Zoom Webinar (Online)
Tutor: Jo Rhymer
Level: All Levels

Description: The Wallace Collection’s outstanding paintings are as inspiring and thought-provoking today as when they were first created. Discover how we can make meaningful connections with them by looking slowly.

This course focuses on the rich subject matter of Dutch and French genre paintings, that is, scenes of daily life. Seen through the lens of a small selection of artists, we’ll discover how ordinary moments are transformed to produce compelling images that reward close looking.

This three-session course is designed to help you develop visual analysis skills by looking at paintings in detail. Concentrating on a small number of genre paintings, you’ll develop core skills in active looking which can be applied beyond the course, as well as increasing your familiarity with the artworks selected.
