St Paul’s Masterclass: Giotto to Guston, the Problem of Painting

22 FEBRUARY 2021 - 08 MARCH 2021



Join St Paul’s School Director of Art, Michael Grant, as he delivers a personal reflection on work and making.

A series of three talks on painting, taking a personal potted history of important works. Drawing on Michael’s experience of making paintings and teaching, each talk will take as its starting point an essential concern for work. Starting with the paradox of painting as both image and object, Michael moves on to look at pictorial space and the idea of the picture plane. The series rounds up with a discussion focusing on the essential prerequisite(for subject, and transformation, in painting.

This masterclass run for 3 weeks on the below dates:

  • Monday 22 February
  • Monday 2 March
  • Monday 8 March

Zoom log in details will be sent to participants closer to the event.
