Have you ever been curious about how to read Western Art? Why specific objects and scenes were painted? Are you interested in finding out about the historical, religious, literary and cultural contexts that shaped these objects as they were made, used and admired? Then these conferences in the history of art could be for you.

Join Sylvie Fromont, lecturer at University of Sydney as she guides you through analyzing artworks and their details from the past. This 5-week series will present artworks that can be seen at the “Botticelli to Van Gogh exhibition” at the NGA as well as other artworks that will help understanding western art evolution in terms of iconography, iconology, and formal analysis. The lectures will be a place where you will learn about iconography and the formal visual elements of a painting but also participate in the learning process within a friendly environment.

Leap into the History of Art lecture series, where you can rewind time and experience what is was like in times past.

Secure your place in this 5-week lecture series, Tuesday or Saturday course options available.
