"From Magic Lanterns to Metro Goldwyn Mayer"
The birth of the Silver Screen and the art that surrounded it.
Dr. Geri Parlby, BA (Hons), MA (Courtauld), PhD,FRSA Wednesday 27 February 2019

The moving image has been a powerful source for imagination from the first moment a magic lantern flickered into life in the 17th century. In this lecture we will be looking at how the Motion Pictures industry first developed throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries and how it was inspired by and inspired in turn some of the greatet artists of the early 20th century.
