'Etrogs, flowers and chocolates', with Gijs van Hensbergen

posted on 14/05/20


While cultural travel remains on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak, many of our wonderful lecturers are spending their time putting forward alternative contributions, chiefly in the form of audio, video and written articles, in their areas of expertise. Gijs van Hensbergen talks about how art and life are interweaved; and the link between still life paintings and national identity.

'Gijs was very knowledgeable about significant venues and artists, and we benefitted from his valuable contacts and experiences. Always solicitous, he generously shared his incredibly wide appreciation of art and artists in his previews and during the tours. Great memory of anecdotes that livened and lightened his talks.' 

A testimonial from a participant on Art in Texas in 2019.
