Manchester Art Gallery holds an extensive collection of still life paintings from the C18th Dutch Golden Age to contemporary art.

Objects of Desire
William Morris said ‘Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be beautiful or believe to be useful’
For many cultural traditions aesthetics is an important aspect of the everyday, and all of us enjoy having objects we value purely for their beauty. Join Gallery guide Deborah Leftwich as we explore aspects of beauty and utility in objects from around the globe.
This talk is online as a Zoom webinar.
Please book through Eventbrite and login details will be emailed to you 2 hours before the start of the event.
