What’s on: future seminars series, summer series and schools

Seminar series and schools are relatively new additions to our programme. In seminars we aim to provide a small group of around twenty members an opportunity to explore a particular aspect of art and architecture in close detail, and to discuss the topic as the seminar unfolds under the direction of an expert in the field. The length of the series will vary depending on the subject, but will usually involve sessions of a couple of hours a week for several weeks.

Schools provide a similar opportunity for the deeper examination of a subject but with larger numbers attending and with less participation.

Summer series is a new event consisting of a series of linked but separate study days on a specific topic taking place over the summer period. Each day can be booked individually.

Fees vary according to the length of these events and they are all for members only.

Early Italian Art (1250-1400): Pisa and the renewal of Italian painting and sculpture

  • Mon 17 June 2019
    10.45am-4.30pm
  • Majorie Sykes Room, Friends House
  • Lecturer: John Renner

Pisa was a great maritime power in medieval Italy and its wealth placed it in the forefront of developments in the arts. This study day will consider the works and influence of Giunta Pisano who was instrumental in introducing the imagery of Byzantine icons into Italian art. The works and influence of Pisan masters such as the sculptors Nicola and Giovanni Pisano will also be examined.
