About

Dutch fine artist, Tanja Moderscheim presents a fascinating art history lecture about the development of the flower painting as a genre in the Netherlands, culminating in Jan van Huysum's work in the 1700s. The lecture will also discuss Tulip Mania and the painter's palette.

Enjoy a private view of the two Jan van Huysum paintings before and after the talk. The talk starts at 10.30am, entry to view the paintings will be from 10am.

Tanja Moderscheim is a Dutch fine artist and a fellow of the Society of Botanical Artists. Her art celebrates and explores cultural heritage, in particular the 17th century Dutch Golden Age. Light and how it touches the subject is an important focus in her paintings.

Tanja stays true to the period by only using 17th century techniques and pigments.

Cultivating rare Dutch Heritage tulip cultivars in her own garden, Tanja has an extensive collection of tulip varieties to paint with, the oldest dating back to the late 16th century.
