Historian John Stevens and Art Historian Sarah Kelly will explore a dramatic period in British History.
These years saw the execution of a King, the deposition of his son and Britain’s only military dictatorship.
The art of the period centred on portraiture: Van Dyck redefined Royalty in his ground-breaking images of Charles I, while Lely created shocking and voluptuous images of Charles II’s mistresses.

Tutor – Sarah Kelly
Subjects: Art History
I’m a lecturer on Western European art and have worked in museums in the UK and abroad.
I spent eight years in France and Belgium, working at Les Abattoirs in Toulouse and at the Museum of Fine Arts and the Magritte Museum in Brussels.
Since returning to the UK in 2009, I have enjoyed combining museum work with lecturing and teaching art history.
I also work with visually impaired people in art galleries.
I like to share my enthusiasm for paintings, drawings and sculpture and want art to be enjoyed by and accessible to everyone.
