You might think it is easy to spot the difference between contemporary art and historical art, but let’s consider what they have in common. Can old masters help us understand works such as ‘The Pile of Bricks’ and ‘The Unmade Bed’? This lecture explores whether the old masters can help us understand modern works and whether artists’ intentions and strategies have really changed across the centuries.

Aliki Braine studied at The Ruskin School of Fine Art, Oxford, the Slade School of Fine Art and the Courtauld Institute where she was awarded a distinction for her Masters in 17th Century painting. She is a regular freelance lecturer for many galleries and collections in London, an associate lecturer for the University of the Arts, London and teaches courses on the Slate School Summer Programme. She also regularly exhibits her photographic work internationally.
