Arts Society Corinium Talk

The merchants of seventeenth century Holland filled their town houses with paintings. A favourite subject was scenes of everyday life: depicting behaviour both good … and bad. This talk by Lynne Gibson will explore the hidden meanings in everyday scenes and become a fluent reader of ‘Double Dutch’.

Members: Free entry, Visitors: £7.00. Refreshments from 6.45pm. Talk starts at 7.30pm

In collaboration with Steppes Travel.
