Signs & Symbols - The Hidden Messages in Paintings
Val Woodgate
Friday 19 May 2017

Friday May 19th 2017 The talk presented by Val Woodgate is entitled Signs & Symbols - The Hidden Messages in Paintings. Val is a lecturer and guide at Tate Britain, Tate Modern & other London Galleries and for the National Trust etc.

The language of symbols is a fascinating study, and one that is essential for a full understanding of art, whether mediaeval or modern.  During this Study Day she will  look at works of art from the 14th to the 20th centuries to examine the way in which artists have used signs and symbols to give deeper layers of meaning to their work.
