At the second attempt, I managed to record Sandra Penketh’s picture of the month talk yesterday at the Lady Lever Art Gallery on John William Waterhouse’s ‘The Decameron’ and ‘The Enchanted Garden’ (mp3/transcript/links).
The paintings are companion pieces, ‘The Enchanted Garden’ depicting a scene from Boccaccio’s Decameron. Sandra’s talk looks at the contemporary influences on Waterhouse, the story of the Enchanted Garden and Lord Lever’s unusual approach to buying from Waterhouse’s widow.
The object of the month talk at 1pm in the Walker tomorrow (Thursday 25 January 2007) is on a Vivienne Westwood outfit from her Buffalo Girls collection.
