Alumni and guests are invited to join the Cambridge Society of Bristol and Bath for for their online talk on paintings: Ways of Looking, Ways of Seeing. 

What do the blind see? It may surprise you to know that looking at some of the world's greatest works of art can help us better understand the answer to this question. In this illustrated live online talk Maud Rowell will tell us more about how paintings - by the likes of Claude Monet and JMW Turner - can open windows into the realities of living with sight loss.

Maud Rowell (Robinson, 2015) studied Japanese at Cambridge and has since trained as a journalist. Blind since the age of 19, she is particularly motivated by telling the stories of those who find themselves marginalised. She writes, among other subjects, about art and photography.
