“Fleeting – Scents in Colour”

From the announcement in the January e-news :

How is smell portrayed in seventeenth-century Dutch art? What significance did people attach to smell? And what aromatic connotations did artworks have? Join art historian Lizzie Marx for an exclusive lecture on Fleeting – Scents in Colour, the 2021 Summer exhibition at the Mauritshuis, about smell in seventeenth-century art. From scented flowers and perfumes, to foul-smelling canals and cadavers, the exhibition brings together paintings, works on paper, and objects, as well as scents. The presentation will last about 60 minutes with Q&A. Cost £10 per screen. Members who are not able to join can register to get access to an exclusive recording after the event.
