Looking With Eyes Wide Open – Lecture 1 – From 1 m to 1 cm

8 February, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

artist and connoisseurs

Recognising that a painting is by one artist rather than another can sometimes be like recognising the handwriting of someone you know well. It is an immediate and certain recognition, but you probably couldn’t put into words what exactly is so distinctive.
This three part course given by Chantal Brotherton-Ratcliffe will attempt to open our eyes more fully to the kinds of details which can tell us who a painting is by, and show us how to notice more fully and see more analytically. We will learn how to notice and decode the clues that a painting is offering us of where, when and by whom it is made.
Lecture 1 – From 1m to 1cm
This first session considers many of the basic stylistic features of a painting, from colouring, to use of lighting, to analysis of how different artists work. We look at the technical aspects, the pigments used, the artists effects of light to see where and when something was painted
