Gustav Klimt

A lecture seeming to locate Klimt within the social milieu of Vienna and investigating his charming personality and idiosyncratic art.

Lecturer: Tim Stimson

Tim Stimson's involvement in art began with the practical; he made his living for a number of years as a painter and ceramicist in Scotland and Wales, before returning to university to study literature and history of art and then training to teach adults.

For the last fifteen years he has been a freelance cultural and art historian specialising in the 19th century and in 17th century art and society. He now lectures for the Universities of Hull, Cambridge and Nottingham, the WEA and NADFAS, and presents residential study courses in Britain and Europe.
