The artists on whom it touches include Constable, Leonardo, Manet, Warhol, Turner, Dali, Harry Beck (creator of the Tube Map) and Alexander McQueen (fashion designer).It concludes with the strange 'afterlife' of Alfred Leete's famous WW1 recruiting poster of Lord Kitchener.
The lecture begins at 2.30pm. All are welcome. Visitors £7.
