Art History Talk – The Christmas Story in Art

Join us for this Festive event at Penarth Pier Pavilion with acclaimed art history lecturer, Stella Grace Lyons for this fascinating talk on the Christmas story in art.

The story has adorned our Christmas cards and provided centuries of artists with a chance to add exotic colour and dramatic light to their works.

This illuminating talk tells the Christmas story through a series of well-known and beloved images, including those by Giotto, Botticelli, Fra Angelico, Jan van Eyck, and Caravaggio.

‘Such a lovely talk with beautiful images. A perfect start to Christmas.’ – Jean Skelding, UK.

‘I saw things that I doubt that I would see at the museum, especially in Bruegel’s paintings. That is the magic of your talks. Thank you so much, as always, Stella.’ – Montatip Krishnamra, USA.

‘ ….excellent talk, bringing the paintings to life and providing so much interesting information’ – Susan Orpin, UK.

Following the art talk please stay for tea and delicious homemade cake, served in the beautiful Pavilion Gallery.
