Art Appreciation: Scottish Art 1750 - 1914

This course explores fascinating artworks made by Scottish artists from c. 1750 to 1914. We explore ways in which Scottish artists responded to European styles (for example in History Painting and Portraiture in the 18c and Japan in the late 19c) at the same time as making distinctively Scottish work. The course covers oil painting, watercolours, photography, design and some architecture. We also look at some multi-media work, including Margaret Macdonald’s murals in gesso, paint and applied beads. We look at artistic groups and examine ways in which members influenced one another as well as responding to European art: examples include the Glasgow Boys and the Scottish Colourists.

Literature: Rediscovering Women Authors: Two comic novels by Angela Thirkell

In this course we will read and discuss books by an author who excelled at comic writing and whose books have mostly been overlooked in recent years. Angela Thirkell’s novels, set in Anthony Trollope’s fictional county of Barsetshire, offer a gently satirical take on social mores and pretensions in upper and middle-class society of the 1930s and 1940s. We will be focusing on two comic novels: High Rising (1933) and Northbridge Rectory (1941). Through friendly and accessible discussions of both texts, we will learn more about their stories, characters and themes, and consider the nature of their author’s distinctive comic voice.
