Tutor: Olive Maggs BA MA PGCEGo to all Courses Go to all Spring Term 2020
This course covers art made from the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 to the death of Queen Anne in 1714 and will include the work of the leading painters of the day – such as Peter Lely, Godfrey Kneller and James Thornhill. We will look at how grand-scale portraiture, the wonder of trompe-l’oeil, the emotional persuasion of religious spaces and the awe-inspiring impact of baroque mural painting were used to convey power, however distant the illusion sometimes was from reality.
