Nottingham from the East with Nicholas Alfrey

University of Nottingham Associate Professor in Art History Nicholas Alfrey explores A View of Nottingham from the East by Jan Siberechts. The painting offers a highly detailed account of the town and its relationship to the Trent Valley. We will also consider the painting as one of two intersecting prospects, since there is another view by Siberechts, now in a private collection, showing the same landscape in reverse shot, seen from the vantage point of Clifton Grove.

View of Nottingham from the East

  • Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery

Taking Jan Siberechts’ c.1690 painting View of Nottingham from the East as a starting point, we will consider the artistic mode of the ‘prospect’ and its intentions and meanings, and of what the painting tells us about Nottingham in the late seventeenth century and beyond.
