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

Post-Impressionism 1910

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!)
For further information please contact Mark Banting by email or via twitter @TheCommonViewer
These monthly Saturday morning art history talks are educational yet informal and open to anyone with an interest in art.
