December 2020 Main Meeting - Dr Alexandra Loske (University of Sussex)

The next Newbury Astronomical Society meeting on the first Friday in December has been moved back a week, to the second Friday of December (the 11th). The meeting subject has also changed, and will be a Christmas lecture.

In this talk art historian Dr Alexandra Loske will give an introduction to colour and pigment history and how artists and illustrators have coloured the universe. Alexandra is the curator of the Royal Pavilion, Brighton and teaches at the University of Sussex. She has published widely on colour in art and is the co-author of a book about the Moon in art and science (with astronomer Robert Massey).
