For those who missed out last time, or wish to revisit it, this previously sold out talk will be repeated. The talk is just under 1 hour and comprehensively explores how the tapestries were conceived and the art-historical inspirations behind them.
What do Jan van Eyck (1390-1491), Andrea Mantegna (1431-1506), Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) and William Hogarth (1697-1764) all have in common? They all inspired some of the rich and detailed imagery you can find in Grayson Perry’s The Vanity of Small Differences.
Join Peter Hall, Head of Exhibitions at The Lightbox as he provides an insider’s view of the tapestries as well as explanations of the many artworks that informed them.
