Provided by Arcadia Education for Art History, join Nick Nelson on 10th December 2019 for a festive sojourn through a series of evocative winter landscapes in the comfort of The Prince’s Dome of the stunning Ned in the heart of the City. Nick will endeavour to bring seasonal, sacred and secular landscapes to life via an array of images and short clips as we celebrate artists of the western tradition from Patinir to Pollock. Decoding the semiotics synonymous with Caspar David Friedrich’s winter landscapes alongside Renaissance masterpieces celebrating the journey of the Magi makes for a fascinating run into the festive season. The majority of the works selected to illustrate this visual talk have intentionally been chosen from the National Gallery, London, enabling a potential follow-up visit to see the works cited at first-hand.
