The Art of the Elements: earth, water, air and fire

The Art of the Elements: earth, water, air and fire
The Art of the Elements: earth, water, air and fire

Alexandra Drysdale is giving four lectures at Bruton Museum on how artists from the past to the present represent the Elements in their work, both literally and symbolically. 
 
Each Element is traditionally associated with an aspect of human nature: earth with body, water with soul, air with mind, fire with spirit. Individual artists tend to lean towards one or two elements, for example, Lucian Freud towards earth, Mondrian to air, Van Gogh to fire, Whistler to water. Some artists such as Turner unite all the elements into a sublime vision of nature and humanity.
