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.
