View of Nottingham from the East

  • Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery Casple Place, Nottingham NG1 6EL (map)

Explore Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery’s Fine Art collection with the Ordinary Culture team and an expert in art history. These talks are suitable for anyone with an interest in art, local history, the British topographical landscape and its artistic representation. 

Join us for a discussion of Siberechts’, A View of Nottingham from the East, exploring what the painting tells us about Nottingham in the late seventeenth century and beyond.  Considering the picture as an example of the ‘prospect’ genre, Dr. Waites will discuss why it was painted, and what images like this meant to people when they were made.

Dr Ian Waites is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Lincoln’s School of Architecture and Design. His research interests centre on landscape, sense of place and memory.

This talks is free and no booking is necessary, but normal entry charges apply. Please note these are not seated events.
