Sunday 28th January 2018 - Talk 10:00 'The Last Supper'
Jeffrey Courtney last presented a talk in Guildford, on Leonaro Da Vinci, almost 2 years ago. That was one of the best attended and best received talks in recent years. On that occasion a wish was expressed to hear more - so here is the opportunity!. Jeffrey is a superb speaker (& artist!) so this will be an engaging event!
The Last Supper is one of Leonardo’s most famous works. It was famous in his own time and has remained so ever since. Jeffery Courtney will tell the fascinating story of how the mural was painted, Leonardo’s working methods and its tragic decay. He will show how Leonardo’s depiction of the famous story of Christ's Last Supper with his disciples outstrips that of any other artist. Leonardo’s painting is remarkable for the powerful psychological interpretation of the disciples reactions. Jeffery will show how ground breaking this was for the time and how Leonardo studied the people around him as models for his painting. He will also analyse Leonardo’s brilliant use of perspective and geometry in the composition which gives this great painting such monumental grandeur. Jeffery Courtney is a professional painter, teacher and lecturer and has made a particular study of the Old Masters’ methods and painting techniques. He communicates this interest with great enthusiasm and brings to his talks not only the skills of the presenter but the eye of the artist.
