The Power of Art by Simon Schama

Wednesday, 6th June, 6.30 – 8pm

Simon Schama’s The Power of Art zooms in on eight great works of art – by Caravaggio, Bernini, Rembrandt, David, Turner, Van Gogh, Picasso and Rothko – and explores the dynamic personalities of the artists and the spirit of the times they lived through. The masterpieces they created challenged convention, shattered complacency, shifted awareness and changed the way we look at the world. Schama rejects the hushed reverence of an art gallery and argues that “the greatest paintings grab you in a headlock, rough up your composure, and then proceed in short order to re-arrange your sense of reality…”
