Gail-Nina Anderson: The Four Seasons in Art - Summer £4


Sunshine and warmth, days at the seaside, working through the heat or cooling in the shade – in art, Summer is the season of contrasts, sultry or sweaty. The goddess of the season proffers her abundance of flowers and fruit, while in an Impressionist vision of leisure the garden is in full bloom, light bounces off the water and colours are brilliant. This talk tracks the imagery of the season from the Limbourg illuminators and stained glass windows to Monet and Nash.
