Art History Mornings at The Beecroft Gallery
Saturday 26th October, 10.30am-12.30pm
with Dr ML Banting
Our explorations of Post-Impressionist and the waves of Cubism / Futurism that extended across Europe in the years just prior to the Great War now come to London and The Vorticist group – perhaps one of the most radical art movements in British Art History. Led by Wyndham Lewis who set up the Rebel Art Centre and launched Blast magazine, the group’s paintings are near-abstract in seeking to represent the speed and movement of urban modernity.
