The Arts Society November lectures
a talented and successful Italian Renaissance painter. Her lengthy career included fifteen years painting portraits at the court of King Philip II of Spain. Anguissola was celebrated in her lifetime: her work was admired and discussed by Vasari and when she was in her 90s, Anthony Van Dyck sought her advice on art.
This lecture presents Anguissola’s life and career in its historical context and explains how her oeuvre is growing as she is now recognised as the author of paintings hitherto attributed to male artists.

This lecture is essentially an overview of the life and work of Salvador Dalí.
I begin by considering the painter's early life and influences and the variety of styles he tried before developing and settling on his own idiosyncratic style.
Dalí came late to Surrealism and was ousted by its controlling leader Andre Breton before too many years had passed. Nevertheless Dalí is often regarded as the archetypal Surrealist. I discuss this notion but also explain Dalí's personal response to Surrealism, in particular the approach he called his 'paranoiac critical activity', one which spawned works such as The Persistence of Memory and Metamorphosis of Narcissus."
