William de Morgan: Victorian Art Potter

William De Morgan was an intimate friend of William Morris and ‘Ned’ Burne-Jones. He began his career as a painter; he became a stained-glass maker, best-selling author and one of the most imaginative and amusing potters and tile-makers of the nineteenth century. His work now commands extremely high prices in the sale-room, as does that by his wife Evelyn, herself an accomplished artist.

The lecture by Matthew Williams examines their fascinating and delightful artistic partnership.
STUDY DAYS

TUESDAY 5 MARCH 2019

2000 YEARS OF EUROPEAN ARCHITECTURE 
- AN ENGINEER'S PERSPESPECTIVE


with John Sherlock

 A wonderful day covering architecture of the classical period, medieval period and then Renaissance and Revival 

The day will be in three sessions:


Session 1: Classical Period: Ancient Greek and Roman domination resulting in the five orders of architecture. 

Session 2: Medieval Period: Byzantine style gives way to truly pan - European "Romanesque'.  Then Western European builders discovered the pointed arch and the Gothic style was established.

Session 3: Renaissance and Revival:  Return of classical Palladian,
 Baroque and Rococo.  Upheaval of 17/18C and Industrial Revolution brought newer styles.

The iconic work forms the centrepiece of this exhibition, and will be displayed alongside other paintings and drawings by Landseer of Highland scenes, showing how he developed his distinctive approach to the representation of the stag as hero.
