The term Gothic does not sit easily with the art that was made in late medieval Ireland. Representing a fusion of the native and the international styles, a wealth of art from metalwork to manuscript still survives. Extending from the thirteenth to the end of the fifteenth century, this art is virtually unknown in the outside world. This lecture will introduce those works and look at the broader world in which they were created.
We are the Dulwich branch of The Arts Society (formerly NADFAS), a leading arts education charity that brings together people with a shared curiosity for the arts, providing access to world-class lecturers sharing their specialist knowledge. The belief that the arts have the potential to enrich peoples' lives is at the heart of everything we do.
We encourage the pleasure of learning through our programme of evening lectures, as well as visits to places of artistic merit in and around London. The Arts Society's Greater London Area offers a comprehensive programme of study days providing opportunities for deeper examination of arts-related subjects.
Our lectures are held in a comfortable purpose-built lecture theatre with its own parking. There is no waiting list and membership is open to everyone.
