“Idyllic Arts and Crafts Gardens: a Haven for our troubled times”
a Lecture by Dr Anne Anderson
Tuesday 19th January
Online via Zoom
The Coronavirus pandemic encouraged many commuters to protect their well-being by tending their gardens. This echoed Victoria nostalgia for a pre-industrial countryside and rural way of life. Artists like Myles Birket Foster and Helen Allingham painted idyllic images of cottages and gardens. Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll blended both. Dr Anderson’s talk will be vividly illustrated by local examples.
Anne Anderson is Associate Professor at Exeter University, a tutor at the V&A and Arts Society lecturer. Her specialist knowledge is the Aesthetic Movement, Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Modernism. Previously, she taught on the Fine Arts Valuation degree at Southampton Solent University.
