Join us to take a closer look at Julian Trevelyan’s painting of The Potteries (1938). What does this painting tell us about industry and development? What is the role of art in holding a mirror to society? What can this painting tell us about modern day Britain?
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 30minutes.
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.
