About the Event
Lecturer Justin Reay
Location Hybrid (in-person and online)
Rembrandt (1606-1669) was a painter and print-maker, engaging in all genres from religious subjects to landscapes, large-scale group portraits to intimate domestic scenes. His drawings and etchings are masterly expositions of line combined with intense tonality while his easel paintings exude passion, bravura impasto, subtle glazes and the highest degree of skill. This talk concentrates on the revealing portraits and painfully honest self-portraits which helped forge his reputation as one of the finest artists of any era.
This lecture will be delivered in a hybrid format – you can attend via Zoom from your home and in person at the
Widcombe Social Club.
Location Widcombe Social Club
Widcombe Social Club is situated at the bottom of Widcombe Hill within walking distance of the Bus and Railway Stations. From the City, the quickest route on foot (a 10-minute stroll) is to walk over the footbridge at the rear of Bath Spa Rail Station. Cross over the A36 at the pedestrian lights and turn left along Widcombe Parade (where there are lots of nice local shops and places to eat).
Cross over the junction with Prior Park Road. The Social Club is on the left at the bottom of Widcombe Hill.
The number 2 bus, from bus stop BK across the road from the train station will take you one stop to Widcombe.
There is very little parking locally. The closest car park is in Southgate which is not far from the Bus Station.
