Art History Mornings: Bloomsbury & The Art of Vanessa Bell

Location: Beecroft22 April 2017 - 22 April 2017

The artist Vanessa Bell has been over-shadowed by the literary side of Bloomsbury for many years yet, with the current exhibition at Dulwich Gallery – not to mention recent fiction and television dramas – her work is coming into focus. A strident and brilliant artist, Bell was at the forefront of British Post-Impressionism.

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.

These monthly Saturday morning art history talks by Dr M L Banting are educational yet informal and open to anyone with an interest in art. Each session combines an illustrated talk and discussion, drawing on collections and current exhibitions around the UK.

For further information and to enrol, please contact Mark Banting:
