Dr Paul O'Keeffe giving talk

The Walker Art Gallery artwork of the month for October is the first prizewinner from John Moores 24, Martin Greenland’s ‘Before Vermeer’s Clouds‘. Dr Paul O’Keeffe gave a gallery talk last Wednesday on the painting, now available online (mp3/transcript/links).

Paul discusses Greenland’s previous four entries in John Moores exhibitions and his development through these paintings. The talk also covers Vermeer’s ‘View of Delft’, the effect of frames on pictures, cloud formations and Greenland’s red corduroy suit.
