Art, Books and Culture at The Beecroft (17th December 2022): The Flower Paintings of the Impressionists

Join us at The Beecroft Gallery, Southend on

Saturday 17th December (11.15am for an hour and a half, or so)

to chase away the grey skies and discuss

The Flower Paintings of the Impressionists (and beyond).

Inspired by the current exhibition “Manet and Eva Gonzales” we will explore how flower painting became a means to explore new ways of painting and, especially, colour,

from Pierre-Auguste Renor’s “Study of Flowers” at The Fitzwilliam (c/o artuk.org) to Vincent Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” series, one of which is at the National Gallery (c/o artuk.org):

As always, everyone is welcome.

There is a £10 charge on the door, with tea and coffee afterwards.
