Neuroscience and the origins of art

with Professor John Onians

GV Art and Mind Symposium 19 | Tuesday 12 November 2013

In September 2006, Professor John Onians presented a lecture called ‘Cracking the real Da Vinci Code: what happens in the artist’s brain?’ The object of his study was to learn more about how artists think, and how these thought processes differ between artists of different eras and locations.

This is an opportunity to hear Professor John Onians, emeritus professor of world art at Univeristy of East Anglia, talking from his unique perspective of Neuroarthistory. He will concentrate on the cave paintings at Chauvet.

The details of the evening are as follows:
Drinks from 7pm, Sit down for dinner 7.30 and presentation by Professor John Onians 8.45 followed by discussion.
