Spring is in the

It should be an interesting lecture - for more information on all our future lectures click HERE

If you can help, please email any information to: firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to Vivienne Skinner or Susan Collinson before the lectures.
August is the month when our subscriptions are due, so it seems a natural time to look back over 2019 and remind ourselves of some of the talks we have enjoyed since 2018 , and what a wonderful eclectic set of talks we have had – the very best of them being interesting, informative, surprising, sometimes horrifying and astonishing and at their heart every one of us has learned something new.
Talks as diverse as The Influence of Japanese Prints on the Western Art World, American Impressionism, a Norman Rockwell Christmas, A fascinating talk on how paintings and artefacts are stolen and how it is all disposed of, the amazing Wentworth Woodhouse, Chatsworth and the Devonshires and we still have Laura Knight, Life and Art in Paris, English artists from Francis Bacon to Graham Sutherland and Art in the Second World War, and finally for 2019 a talk on the Victorians and what they thought about death.
Truly something for everyone and a very rewarding two years of art in all its complexity and fascination.
Here’s to 2020 – I can’t wait
