Broomsticks and Cauldrons: The Image of the Witch in Art

The image of the witch that has perpetually been seen within society is that of an old woman with a pointed hat, broomstick, cauldron and cat, however, this talk will examine the wide variety of visual representations of the witch within art. Starting with early woodcuts of the 15th century, onto the work of Goya and Durer and through to more contemporary representations by Warhol and Hockney this talk will explore how representations of the witch is far more complex and how she has been shown in many forms to discredit her within society or reflect the stereotype. This is a fully illustrated talk to examine the image of the witch in art so come and see how art has interpreted this occult figure across the centuries.
