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."
