WYVERN AREA STUDY DAYS 2020 - DAY 2 - Japanese History Art and Culture Suzanne Perrin Wednesday 26 February 2020

Suzanne Perrin has constructed a unique Study Day that will examine aspects of truth and beauty in Japanese art, focusing on the role of Japanese women in art. The fortunes and status of women in Japanese society have risen and fallen with changing times and Suzanne will take us on a journey of reverence, beauty, realism and fantasy, from the 18th Century woodblock prints of ‘beauties’ that were exported to the West, through to the portrayal and role of women in contemporary Japanese counter-culture.

This Study Day will provide an interesting contrast to Day One. An experienced Arts Society Lecturer, Suzanne Perrin B.A. M.A is an expert on Japanese history, art and culture.

Venue The Headley Lecture Theatre, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. (10.30am - 3.30pm)

Price £38 per day or £114 for the series. Includes coffee and sandwich lunch.

Open to both The Arts Society members and non-members
