Join us if you can on

at The Beecroft Gallery, Southend

to discuss the Life and Mosaic Art of Boris Anrep (1883-1969) with particular reference to his mosaics at the National Gallery, London which include:

the depiction of Virginia Woolf as Clio, the Muse of History.

It’s a fascinating life story that will take us from St Petersburg’s Silver Age to London’s Bloomsbury Group.


The Art, Books & Culture meetings take place in the Beecroft Lecture Theatre, admission is £10 on the door and there will be coffee & biscuits Рall welcome!


PS. thinking of mosaics, did you see during the Coronation ceremony the beautiful and extraordinary Cosmati Pavement?
