21 November 18 Toby Faber – Indians, Buffaloes and Storms: the American West in 19th Century Art
Toby Faber is a regular and very popular visitor to our U3A and is remembered for his fascinating talks on Faberge and Stradivarius. In this lecture, he charts the history of the opening up of the American West by the early explorers. Artists were never far behind and the story they tell can be gritty and down-to-earth or romanticised. However, it is always on a grand scale and the art, whatever its artistic merits, is great fun.
