The Art of Exploration and Encounter
London SE10 9NF
In an era before photography, the details of European voyages of exploration were recorded by expedition artists. But as well as making scientific records, these artists played a key role in representing the places, climates, people and customs encountered on these expeditions. This lecture will consider what the art of exploration can tell us about British attitudes to the wider world in this period.
With Profesor John MacAleer, University of Southampton.
