A number of our lecturers are not only Art Historians with degrees from prestigious universities under their belt, they are also celebrated artists in their own right! I thought it would be nice to highlight two!

This Friday we kick off with a series of 3 talks by Lydia Bauman which are all part of her series on Looking at Art, where she examines how paintings communicate their message. Each lecture works as a stand alone talk, but all three follow the same structure.
