Art History Mornings at The Beecroft Gallery
Saturday 25th May 2019, 10.30am-12.30pm
with Dr ML Banting
On or Around 1910:
Post-Impressionist Colour comes to Britain
Join us to discuss Roger Fry’s “Manet and the Post-Impressionists” exhibition, which caused such a furore in London, 1910.
The works of Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and others riled the critics who saw it as marking the end of civilisation.
Today we’ll look at the impact of Post-Impressionism among the artists of Bloomsbury and Camden Town within a broader cultural and political spectrum, in particular the women’s suffrage movement’s use of symbolic colour.
Meetings are held 10.30am – 12.30pm in the Beecroft Gallery lecture theatre.
Each talk costs £10 and includes tea/coffee (biscuits!)
