What a fantastic set of 4 evenings spent with art historian and teacher, Robert Orme, as he examined everything from the Renaissance Psychology of Art, to the Parallels between Modernist Art and Literature, to American occultist Paschal Beverly Randolph.
In his first talk, Robert gave us his unique insight into a fascinating interpretation of Art through the Renaissance ideas of the brain, and its connection to the concepts of divinity and Greek ideas of how one should view the world.
In his two-part lecture on the Parallels between Modernist Art and Literature, he delved into specific examples of the two forms of artistic expression, whilst linking them to influences of the ever-changing and volatile Modernist period.
In the final instalment of Robert’s series, he discussed the modern cultural significance of American occultist Paschal Beverly Randolph, and his affect on medicine from the 19th century onwards.
If you missed any of the lectures, or would like to watch them again, you can catch up on our video library.
£1,100 was raised from tickets and donations across the series, which will go towards funding the Bursary in Robert Orme’s name for a talented student to join Latymer’s Sixth Form to study History of Art or History.
