About the event
Following the AGM there will be a talk by Gabriel Chanan, a researcher, playwright and entertaining public speaker with a lifelong interest in the visual arts. This fascinating look at Renaissance Painting gives a broad introduction and framework for understanding and appreciating it, focusing on the new techniques of the period such as perspective, foreshortening and dramatic use of light and shade. Whilst highlighting the best known artists such as Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael, it
looks at how their techniques were first developed by earlier masters and how they were modified by later artists such as Caravaggio, Veronese and Artemisia Gentileschi. He also looks at the contrasts between the Italian and Dutch schools.
