Peter Trippi Lecture on 11/30

Painting in England, 1837 - 1901, a lecture by Peter Trippi
You are invited to join us for a free lecture on Nov. 30 at 4:30 PM in the cast hall. As usual, we will be feasting on our trademark lecture snack: red wine and oreo cookies.

Independent scholar Peter Trippi will survey the wide range of paintings made in England during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901). Although Britain was the world's leading superpower during this period, its art has unfairly been written off by most American scholars as provincial and backward-looking. Rather than providing an in-depth analysis of each movement active during this lively period, Trippi will explain how and why they are interconnected by highlighting their finest examples. Among the topics to be covered are Pre-Raphaelitism, the Aesthetic Movement, the Grand Manner, Landscape, Watercolors, and the varying influences from Paris.
