WYVERN AREA STUDY DAYS 2020 - DAY 3 - European Art – Influences on Perceptions of Value Dr Chantal Brotherton-Ratcliffe Tuesday 24 March 2020

A relatively new Arts Society lecturer, Dr Chantal Brotherton-Ratcliffe trained as a painting conservator and worked for 30 years at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, teaching on the MA in Fine and Decorative Arts.

In our third specially constructed Study Day, Chantal will talk to us about how the social and political context in which European Art was produced both influenced the artists and defined perceptions of value.

She will also explain how experts can tell the difference between one artist and another and discuss the role of assistants and copyists within the studio of a master painter.

Chantal will additionally examine how the value of workshop pieces, collaborative works and straightforward  copies has fluctuated from art centre to art centre, and from century to century.

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
