Hopper - New York Restaurant

 

 

 

The Art of Edward Hopper 1882-1967

 

Friday 7 June 

09.30-12.30

 

 

A prominent American realist painter and printmaker, Hopper’s work demonstrates that realism is not merely a literal or photographic copying of what we see, but an interpretive rendering. His vision of reality was a selective one, reflecting his own temperament in the empty cityscapes, landscapes, and isolated figures he chose to paint.

 

The cost is £20.00, but does not include refreshments, however, there is a coffee and tea machine in Allendale House and water is provided on the tables.  To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.

Rothko - Violet, Green & Red

 

 

 

JMW Turner and his Influence on Modern Art Movements

 

Friday 21 June 

09.30-12.30

 

 

Turner is perhaps the best-loved English Romantic artist. He became known as ‘the painter of light’, because of his increasing interest in brilliant colours as the main constituent in his landscapes and seascapes. We will explore this outstanding artist’s influence on future generations of artists, such as the Impressionists, and what led the American Abstract Expressionist artist, Mark Rothko, to remark in viewing Turner’s works: “This man Turner, he learned a lot from me.”

 

The cost is £20.00, but does not include refreshments, however, there is a coffee and tea machine in Allendale House and water is provided on the tables.  To make further enquiries and to  book please telephone 01202 888992 and speak to Sarah or Kim.

Pierre Auguste Renoir

Renoir is best known for his paintings of bustling Parisian modernity and leisure in the late19th century.
