Special Interest day !st November – Goya


2 one-hour lectures from 10.30 – 11.30 am and 11.50 am – 12.50 pm
followed by a short session for questions.

GOYA by Dr Jacqueline Cockburn

The study morning will focus on this extraordinarily versatile and fascinating artist.  Dr. Cockburn will consider Goya’s self-portraiture, his rise to Court Painter and his response to historical events, and his ongoing health problems, and the decision to leave Spain.  The second session will assess Goya’s appropriation of previous painters such as Valazquez and some of the great masters of Spanish Still Life such as Zurbaran.  It will be argued that Goya’s reassessment of the past is precisely what makes him so modern.

Although life has returned to some normality, Covid has not gone away, and so the decision was made to zoom this Special Interest day, once again.
The cost of the session will be £12.50 per person, payable either by cheque to The Arts Society New Forest and sent to Sue Randall, Bracken Lodge, Butts Paddock, Meerut Road, Brockenhurst, SO42 7TD,  or by bank transfer, The Arts Society New Forest, sort code 40-34-25, account number 91524895, with your name as a reference to secure your place.  Please pay by 15th October.
