Missed out on recent events at MHWI? Catch up here ….

Love and Romance in Art was the topic for our monthly meeting on 27th February and our speaker, Grainne, led a fascinating session on exploring the details and secrets of famous paintings portraying couples.   Grainne works for a charity called ‘Magic Lantern’ which uses works of art to help children and adults observe more closely the world around them.  We certainly came away feeling that our eyes had been well and truly opened!

If you missed the session, here is a list of the paintings we explored together:

  • 1434  –  The Arnolfini PortraiTt by Jan Van Eyck (National Gallery, London)
  • 1622  –  A Marriage Portrait by Frans Hals (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam)
  • c1767   The Swing by Jean-Honore Fragonard (The Wallace Collection, London)
  • 1853  –  The Awakening Conscience by William Holman-Hunt (Tate Gallery, London)
  • 1908  –  The Kiss by Gustav Klimt (Osterreichische Galerie Belvedere, Vienna)
    as shown below, and then zoomed in on the couple.

 

On Wednesday, 6th March, we also had our Greek Street Food evening in the Lounge at the Congregational Church when Margarita Pap came to talk to us and demonstrate three traditional Greek dishes – a Greek Salad, Tzatziki, and Courgette and Feta fritters.    Margarita gave us many tips about choosing and preparing Greek food and we all had a chance to sample the delicious dishes she made at the end of the session.  So authentic was the taste, that we could imagine ourselves whisked back to holidays relaxing by the shores of a sun-baked Greek island….!

If you missed the session and/or want to try out these delicious recipes, they can be found on Margarita’s website here:

Off to try out the recipes for dinner tonight!
