Art History Mornings: Sunny Days in Cornwall (1900s) @ Beecroft Gallery
We enter the 20th-century bathed in sunlight as the influence of French Impressionism takes us back down to Cornwall. We are in holiday mood. Artists such as Lamorna Birch, Alfred Munnings and Laura Knight find themselves enraptured by clear air, warm sunshine and blue seas: children paddle, artists sketch and colours become golden bright.
These monthly Saturday morning art history talks are educational yet informal and open to anyone with an interest in art. Each session combines an illustrated talk and discussion, drawing as appropriate on collections and current exhibitions around the UK.
Meetings will be held on Saturday mornings, 10.30am to 12.30pm in the Lecture Theatre on the ground floor of the Beecroft Gallery.
Each talk costs £10 and includes tea/coffee (biscuits!) and resource materials for independent research.
