GOLD IN ART!

Posted on: October 31st, 2014 by admin

VENUE: CAFE PORTICO 25TH NOVEMBER 6.30PM

From earliest civilisations gold with it’s magic lustre had a very special place amongst colours. Expensive, durable and beautiful, it became synonymous with many different and often conflicting things such as ostentation and sensuality, the sun and it’s life giving powers and the sacred. We will trace the place of gold in the history of European art, from the medieval practice and technique of gilding religious panels to many myths and legends with gold as their subject.

Join Lydia Bauman for this pre-christmas special lecture. It will be good to see you there!
