Art History Mornings at The Beecroft (24th March 2018): The Norwich School of Painters

Art History Mornings at The Beecroft Gallery

Saturday 24th March, 10.30am-12.30pm

with Dr ML Banting

The Norwich School of Painting

In the early 19th century, Norwich was home and hub to an extraordinary school of British artists – oil painters and watercolourists – who, inspired by Dutch masters, captured a local ‘sense of place’ equivalent to the artists of Newlyn at the end of the century. From John Crome and John Sell Cotman to the Stannard family we’ll explore landscape, seascapes & still life paintings.
