Art History Mornings at The Beecroft (30th March 2019): The Scottish Colourists

Art History Mornings at The Beecroft Gallery
Saturday 30th March 2019, 10.30am-12.30pm

The Scottish Colourists

In the wake of Van Gogh and Gauguin’s post-impressionism, artists across Europe were exploring the power of colour in the first years of the 20th century, many heading for Paris, the city of light and capital of art. Today we’ll explore the Parisian adventures and glorious early paintings of those young student-artists who would become known as   The Scottish Colourists.
