Apocalypse Now? The Recent Work of Peter Howson
Keynote lecture by Susan Mansfield
For the last two decades, Peter Howson’s art has focussed on two main themes: religious painting and scenes from the apocalypse. These subjects might seem distant from us in today’s world. However, looking more closely at them, we begin to see that Howson uses the End of Days as a means to address the times in which we live.
