BBC Civilisations Festival: Take a Closer Look (free lunchtime talk)

Friday, 9 March | 12.30 pm - 1.00 pm

| Free

Join us to take a closer look at Mark Gertler’s painting of his sister, Deborah (c.1911).

What does this painting tell us about Gertler’s life as a working-class Jewish artist? How does this painting reflect both his life and his aspirations for the future? What does it tell us about artistic outsiders?

We will take this painting out of store to see what stories it can unlock and what it can teach us.

Lunchtime talks 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
