Wessex: Inspired Landscapes - Art History Course

  • £30-£35
  • 05 - 19 Oct 22
  • The Salisbury Museum, 65 The Close, Salisbury, SP1 2EN
  • 10:30-12:30

This series of Art History talks will run over three consecutive weeks. Its main focus will be how artists have responded to the Wessex Landscape, both rural and urban. The current Hardy's Wessex exhibition at The Salisbury Museum will provide a backdrop for the talks.

We will examine how visual artists have also extracted narratives from their local environments and how some of them were inspired directly by Hardy's writing. Cornwall, although not strictly Wessex, will also be considered - a place close to Hardy's heart and an area of the West Country that has produced some of the most inspired landscape paintings.

The sessions will explore a wide range of paintings created by many different artists who have been inspired by the Wessex Landscape.

The course will be held in the Lecture Hall at The Salisbury Museum.

There will be three sessions, held on Wednesday mornings from 10:30am to 12:30pm (including a break) on 5,12 and 19 October 2022.
