Saturday 14 September 2019                                    ' Inspired by Birds '                                    Peter Holden MBE

From Victorian Britain to the present day. Birds have been the subject for painters, composers, writers, poets and sculptors from earliest time's right up to the present day. In this presentation Peter will look at a wide variety of birds through the works of many different artists of 20th and 21st centuries and discover what inspired them and how they incorporated their observations into their art. For many artists their works were also an important contribution to the conservation movement that was slowly developing at the same time.

Do please join us and Peter for a facination presentation

The talk willinclude quite a bit about the book and how to identify birds by their songs and calls, but hopefully in a fun and entertaining way.
