Virtual Social Events – New events
Art Lecture, Tuesday 11th May – 7pm – Charles Rennie Mackintosh – Art Nouveau and Vienna by Dr Anne Anderson
Free on Zoom for all Club Members
In 1900 Charles Rennie Mackintosh and The Glasgow Four were invited to exhibit their avant-garde designs at the Vienna Succession. Vienna welcomed the Glasgow style. The sensuous lines of French Art Nouveau were renounced in favour of clean geometric forms. The black and white checkerboard pattern exemplifies this new design ethos.
European Modernism appears to evolve from this meeting of the Scottish School and the Viennese Succession, leading to the Bauhaus and the International style.
Dr Anne Anderson is an Honorary Professor at Exeter University, Art Society Lecturer and V&A tutor. She has curated four major national exhibitions such as Beyond the Brotherhood The Pre-Raphaelite Legacy (2019—20), written books and been published in leading arts academic magazines. She has held several prestigious fellowships including Fellow of the Huntington Library, CA (2008-09 and 2018-19) and lectures worldwide including USA, Canada and has made four Australian tours.
This is an extra lecture sponsored by Roehampton Club so that all Members of the Club can watch free online.
A Year in the Life of the Queen – Virtual Talk by Viv Haxby, Thursday 13th May at 6.30pm
Roehampton Club Member and Blue Badge Guide, Viv Haxby, will regale us with nitty gritty information about HRH Queen Elizabeth’s life. We will hear about her support team – both the Royal Family, and the ‘men in grey suits’. If you ever wondered who is entitled to the style HRH, Viv will explain. And even more importantly we will learn who curtseys to whom within the Family. The Queen has been at the heart of the annual round of pomp and ceremony for nearly 70 years – Viv will tell the stories behind some of these royal events. We will look at the royal homes and how they are used, and you will learn how it is all paid for. And obviously Viv will not forget the royal corgis!
