Lecture on Whistler

whistler-lecture

On 1st February 2016 our Honorary Vice-President David Le Lay presented a lecture entitled “Five Things Whistler Did for Artists”.

Whistler was not just one of the most outstanding painters of the 19th Century he was also an important figure in the development of art and its place in society.

He believed that art – how it was valued and the way it was displayed – was both crucial and central to any civilisation and he campaigned for this throughout his life.
