Monet’s Haystacks: Seriously Serial Cereal Lecture
Thursday 1 February 2018
5.30pm Private Viewing, 6.00pm Lecture
Coinciding with the great Monet on loan from the National Galleries of Scotland, this lecture is presented by Professor Michael Clarke CBE and examines how Monet came to paint the series of more than thirty Haystacks (more properly Grainstacks), fifteen of which were exhibited to great acclaim at the Durand-Ruel Gallery in Paris in 1891. The show established both Monet’s international reputation and the concept of serial art.
Professor Clarke is a Lakeland Arts Trustee, former Director of the Scottish National Gallery, and author of books on French art and Impressionism.
From 5.30pm-6.00pm there will be a chance to view the masterpiece. The talk will commence at 6.00pm.
Tickets are £15 or £10 for Lakeland Arts Members, Patrons and Benefactors.
