The Changing Face of Venice by Sarah Quill
Jun 14 @ 2:30 pm

 

 

In our imagination Venice is unchanging, but after the fall of the Venetian Republic in 1797 the modern world began leaving its mark.  In the mid-nineteenth century, alterations were being made to many buildings, and the city suffered bombing during the 1849 siege, following the uprising against Austrian occupation.  Sarah Quill, a trustee of The Venice in Peril Fund, has worked between Venice and London for many years to create a photographic archive of Venetian architecture, environment, and daily life. Her book, Ruskin’s Venice: The Stones Revisited, has recently been published in a new edition. In this illustrated talk she will show some of the changes that have taken place in the lagoon city. 

Sarah Quill has worked between Venice and London for many years to create a photographic archive of Venetian architecture, sculpture, and daily life. Her book, Ruskin’s Venice: The Stones Revisited was published in 2000, followed by a new edition in 2015.  During the 1980s she worked in the film industry, taking the stills photographs on feature films. She lectures regularly, principally on Venetian subjects, and is a trustee of the Venice in Peril Fund, the British committee for the preservation of Venice.

Caravaggio by Andrew Graham Dixon
Jul 12 @ 2:30 pm

PLEASE NOTE – THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio lived the darkest and most dangerous life of any of the great painters. The worlds of Milan, Rome and Naples through which Caravaggio moved and which Andrew Graham-Dixon describes brilliantly in his book, are those of cardinals and whores, prayer, and violence. 

Art critic, author, journalist and TV presenter, Andrew Graham- Dixon is one of the UK’s leading figures in broadcasting having presented numerous major television series on art for the BBC. He has spent a decade piecing together the scraps of evidence left of Caravaggio’s life and answering questions that have long puzzled scholars. His insights and analyses form the basis of his lecture.

PLEASE NOTE: THE PRICE FOR THIS LECTURE IS £15 per head (£13 for Members)
