The Overshadowed – A Look At Artists We Know Little About

17 March, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

De La Tour

This lecture will touch on the vast number of excellent artists who happened to be born at the same time as a much more well known name, and so whose work we simply do not know.

Have you had this experience?  You go to a gallery or an exhibition and are stopped dead by an unknown picture; you look at the label and find you have never heard of the artist.  How does it come about that there can be such wonderful painters of whom we have never heard?

Chantal Brotherton-Ratcliffe will consider some of the many reasons for a good artist’s obscurity, from the brevity of his life to the misfortune of his being born and working in the shadow of a larger reputation, such as Leonardo or Rembrandt. But, above all, it is an excuse to spend time gorging on beautiful paintings, finding hidden treasures.
