Kauffman

 

Angelica Kauffman

 

Friday 21 May

 

09.30-12.30

 

 

 

 

 

Born in Switzerland in 1741, Angelica Kauffman (1741–1807) was quickly recognised as a child prodigy, before receiving further artistic training in Italy. Arriving in London in 1766, she enjoyed an unprecedented career as a history painter and portraitist before moving to Rome in 1782, where her studio became a hub of the city’s cultural life.

 

Kauffman’s career was unusual for a female artist in the late 18th and early 19th century. A highly acclaimed portraitist, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, working for patrons across Britain and the continent, including Catherine the Great amongst others.

 

The cost is £20.00. To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.

Wright

 

Joseph Wright of Derby

 

Monday 24 May

 

09.30-12.30

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wright has been acclaimed as "the first professional painter to express the spirit of the Industrial Revolution".  His paintings of the birth of science out of alchemy are a significant record of the struggle of science against religious values in the period known as the Age of Enlightenment.  He was also a painter of remarkable landscapes and portraits and is now considered to be one of Britain’s most interesting and wide-ranging painters.

 

The cost is £20.00. To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.

Mondrian

 

Piet Mondrian and de Stijl

 

Friday 28 May

 

09.30-12.30

 

 

 

 

 

Mondrian's rigorously geometric paintings in primary colours are icons of the 20th century and had a powerful impact on popular taste in art and design.  I will be tracing and explaining the evolution of his work from a more realistic style showing the influence of Luminism, through to Impressionism, Pointillism and most importantly, Cubism.

 

The cost is £20.00.  To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.

Frampton

 

British Realist Paintings in the 1920s and 1930s

 

Friday 4 & Monday 7 June

 

09.30-12.30

 

 

 

When abstract art became fashionable after WWI, many artists opted instead for a new sharp-focused realist style and found new subjects in modern life.  Artists such as Meredith Frampton, James Cowie, Stanley and Gilbert Spencer, Hilda Carline, Gerald Leslie Brockhurst, Laura Knight and Harold Harvey.

 

The cost is £34.00. To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.

Sargent

 

 

John Singer Sargent

 

Friday 11 June

09.30-12.30

 

 

 

Sargent’s work stands out amongst other portraitists for its exceptional individual style and innovation.  This is also true for his remarkable figure and landscape works in both oils and watercolours and his numerous drawings.  

 

 

The cost is £35.00 for the two study days.  To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.

Boilly

 

 

Louis-Leopold Boilly

 

Friday 18 June

09.30-12.30

 

 

 

One of the most important artists of revolutionary France. Working in a politically turbulent Paris he witnessed the French Revolution, the rise and fall of Napoleon, and the Restoration of the French Monarchy.  From controversially seductive interior scenes, which saw him get into trouble with the authorities, to ‘first-of-their-kind’ everyday street scenes and clever trompe l’oeils, Boilly’s daring responses to the changing political environment and art market he encountered highlights his sharp powers of observation and wry sense of humour.  

 

 

The cost is £35.00 for the two study days.  To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.

 

Enquiries & Bookings: Telephone 01202 888992  

Caillebotte

 

 

Gustave Caillebotte

 

Friday 9 July

09.30-12.30

 

 

 

Intriguing, innovative and influential artist whose highly original works developed from Realism and Impressionism and went on to inspire the Neo-Impressionists such as Seurat and Signac.  

 

 

The cost is £35.00 for the two study days.  To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.
