Join us to take a closer look at Sylvia Gosse’s painting, The Printer (1915).
What does this painting tell us about the status of women artists at the time and now, n the present day? Can we see Gosse’s experiences reflected in this painting? How has she been influenced by art from outside Britain?
We will take this painting out of store to see what stories it can unlock and what it can teach us.
Lunchtime talks are free and start at 12.3opm and last for approximately 30 minutes.
This talk is part of the BBC’s Civilisations Festival, which runs between Friday 2nd March – Sunday 11th March 2018. For more information, visit bbc.co.uk/civilisations or search for #Civilisations on social media.
