Beauty Love and Desire - Tues 26th march 7pm

An Art Appreciation Presentation in the MacKenzie Hall

From the earliest images until the 20th century, the exemplars of male and female beauty were principally founded on Greek and Roman sculpture. This presentation will examine how artists throughout the ages used their skill and imagination to evoke the myriad mythological and literary narratives of beauty, desire and love between the sexes. From Botticelli’s, The Birth of Venus to Giorgione’s, Sleeping Venus and from Titian’s Poesies to Rossetti’s evocations of Jane Morris and the tragic muses of Auguste Rodin, Camille Claudel and Amedeo Modigliani, Jeanne Hebuterne, the various guises of beauty, love and desire will be illustrated with images of the most beautiful paintings and sculpture ever conceived.

Doors open 6.40pm. Entrance at the door £5.  Further information from Brian Armstrong: brianarm100@icloud.com
