ADFAS Noosa Inc welcomes visiting art historian Nicole Mezey (a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts) who will give a lecture on 23 May to members on Renoir's masterpiece – 'Bal du Moulin de la Galette', a luminous work that captures the essential pleasure of Impressionism; a vivid contemporary moment, full of life and joyous energy, shimmering with light and colour.

Her talk will explore how this work reflects the spirit of Renoir himself, and sets it in the context of its age, of social, technological and political upheaval, and the re-framing of the function of art in a century of change.  Once considered a radical movement Impressionism inspired a new wave of artists – the forerunner of modern art.

Guests and visitors welcome – bookings essential 5455 4749, fee of $25 at the door.
