ADFAS Noosa's August guest lecturer Linda Smith, will take a generally light-hearted look at changing attitudes to sexual morality down the ages. Her presentation examines the portraits and careers of some of history's most notorious mistresses and courtesans. It also charts the rather complex and ambiguous attitudes of art and society towards the numerous anonymous working girls at the lower end of the scale, by investigating how they have been represented in art at different times and places from the 17th to the 20th century.

This lecture is very much a social history: carefully placing the works of art in their proper historical context, which reveals many little nuances and meanings in well-known works which might not otherwise be immediately apparent to the modern eye.
