Art and the Great War

November 13 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Guildford Institute, Ward Street
Guildford, GU1 4LH United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£19.35

The Great War radically changed the world; both society generally and the public perception of the globe were altered. The role art played within this upheaval is complex. Neither outright propaganda, nor criticism, make for the best art. The strongest statements are more nuanced and grow out of individual experience and vision. We will look at this range of responses, as well as how the war influenced art and how art influenced views of the war.

Were Renaissance portraits commissioned to show other people what the patron looked like, or for status? To establish the patron’s sense of self, when mirrors weren’t widely available? Or commissioned to take pleasure in the fine art of portrayal? Were they idealised? Can we ever be sure of a realistic portrait? This course will run at the same time as the Lorenzo Lotto Portraits exhibition at the National Gallery, from 05 November 2018 – 10 February 2019.
