Pierhead Painters

Not all art is imaginatively fluid. Sometimes the artist must accurately portray the subject, with perhaps a little flexibility on the background. Paintings of ships at sea are among the most iconic artworks in the world and artists who painted ship portraits are renowned for their careful and accurate depiction of their subjects.  The paintings would have been commissioned by the ships’ owners or captains and they required a precise picture of their vessel.  Our speaker, Jonathan Aylen, explores the narratives and peculiarities behind some of these paintings.

The meeting will be held as usual at the Weaverham Primary Academy on Northwich Road, on Tuesday, 14 March at 7.30 pm and I look forward to seeing you then.
