Everyone is welcome at this informal book group. We each bring along a book (or two) to talk about and have a lively discussion. Books can be on any subject: fiction or non- fiction, contemporary or modern, poetry or prose. The group meets on the third Tuesday of the month in the Café Lounge in the Museum, where you can purchase delicious cakes and drinks. Please just drop in or email Judith.email@example.com for more information.
In this session we’ll examine the competing cultures of Neoclassicism , Enlightenment and Romanticism and how these 18th century movements changed the history of art.
