Fri, Feb 11


Whittaker Suite, The Old Town Hall

Nicolas Poussin Explained

Poussin's great multi-figured paintings are beautifully composed, highly coloured evocations of classical & religous subjects. They can be a little daunting and it is heartening to know that even Poussin's learned patrons sometimes struggled with their meaning! Join Hattie as she guides us through.
