The Sunflower in Art and Culture Twigs Way Wednesday 07 October 2020

This lecture will be delivered live by Zoom.
 

Worshipped by Aesthetes and cultivated by Impressionists, the sunflower cast its golden rays across art and culture.  A personification of the divine and regal.  We trace its history from classical myth to twentieth century painting via Van Dyck and Van Gogh, Clytie and Klimt, Monet, Rivera, Wilde and Watts.
