SAW - Turner's Ehrenbreitstein: The Byron Legacy
Julian Gascoigne, Sotheby's Director and Head of Early British Paintings, will present Turner's masterpiece Ehrenbreitstein, the highlight of the Sotheby's summer sale season, and talk you though the painting's extraordinary history; its vital legacy in the development of modern art; and the influence of Byron's epic poem Childe Harold on the artist's work.
Slow Art Workshop – SAW – is to give people of any age curious about any kind of art the opportunity of looking at it and, more importantly, handling it, within a small group led by a specialist dealer or curator. These workshops are not talks, or master classes for aficionados, but environments in which anyone can engage with objects first hand, look, think and ask questions. They are as much about passion and pleasure as knowledge; offering a gentle reminder that there is more out there than contemporary art.
