This is a richly illustrated (colour slides) 45 minute talk about how WWI affected art and artists. Using the current commemorations as a hook, this talk explores key figures, ideas and art movements to show the impact the conflict had and the lasting changes that came about as a result of artists' exposure to war.
It's a new angle on a current historical topic and offers a lively overview of an important period. Educational, but pitched to a layman's knowledge and interest level, with time for questions afterwards.Views: 317 | Enquiries: 3
I am an American journalist based in the North West for the last 12 years. I have written extensively on art themes for radio documentaries and the New York-based art magazine ARTnews, and now speak regularly to such groups as the WI, Mother's Union, Probus, Masonic Lodges, U3A and various other community leisure groups. I have a colourful background including years of broadcasting in the Netherlands and Switzerland, so I am a professional and engaging speaker. I have traveled extensively for my work and am multi-lingual. I have also worked as writer-in-residence at HMP Lancaster Castle (it closed as a prison in 2011)!
I live in the beautiful Lune Valley village of Wray and travel within approximately one hour radius for speaking engagements. Please contact me to discuss your needs - you won't be disappointed.
