The Scottish Colourists

 

Friday 18 February 

09.30-12.30

 

 

“The Scottish Colourists” is the collective term by which the four artists, S. J. Peploe (1871—1935), J. D. Fergusson (1874—1961), G. L. Hunter (1877—1931) and F. C. B. Cadell (1871—1935) are popularly known.  By combining their Scottish artistic heritage with contemporary French art styles, in a new, distinctive, and highly individual way, the Scottish Colourists forged a new, colourful and vibrant description of the world around them. They are amongst the most admired of early twentieth-century British painters.

 

The cost is £22.00 for the study day.  To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.

Thomas Gainsborough

Friday 4 March

Thomas Gainsborough was a highly experimental and innovative artist, who didn’t adhere to academic rules, who is best known as one of the great portrait painters of his era. However, he also loved painting landscapes and set many of his portrait figures within gloriously scenic settings. Constable once said of Gainsborough’s paintings: “On looking at them, we find tears in our eyes and know not what brings them.”

 

The cost is £22.00 for the study day.  To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.

“The Bloomsbury Group” is the name given to the artists, writers and intellectuals who began to meet at the Bloomsbury home of the artist Vanessa Bell and her sister, the author Virginia Woolf in 1905.  We will look at the ideas, lifestyles and relationships through the eyes of the artists of this group, amongst whom will be Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and Roger Fry.
