TJ McNamara 2018 Winter Lecture Series
This series concentrates on three outstanding artists, Caravaggio, Rembrandt & Klimpt, who broke the accepted mold of artistic endeavour. All three played a large part in the art of their times, but in both their lives and work, separated themselves from convention doing things that were startingly new.
Tuesdays: August 24 & 31, September 4th, 7.30pm
At Kotare Venue, 7 Kotare Av, Westmere, Auckland
This session will explore how Caravaggio’s work was largely influenced by his life experience, being a criminal and pursued from place to place by the authorities.
Week 2: Goya
This week we explore Goya ranging through Rococo work to savage social comment, even with middle age deafness which isolated him into a world of his own.
Week 3: Klimt
In our final session we explore the influence on Klimpt’s art of fashion and design, that he largely helped create, in the hothouse of culture that was Venice in the turn of the 19th & 20th centuries.
