Spencer

 

Stanley Spencer

 

Friday 25 September

 

09.30-12.30

 

 

 

 

 

Spencer was born in 1891 in the lovely Berkshire village of Cookham, in which he spent most of his life and with which his work is inextricably linked. His unique and visionary art sometimes combined picturesque everyday village life with religious scenes:  “Everything has a sort of double meaning for me, there's the ordinary everyday meaning of things, and the imaginary meaning about it all, and I wanted to bring these things together.”  However, his oeuvre ranges from idyllic village gardens to images of WWI and WWII and makes personal comments on life, love and sense of community.

 

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

Artists of the Tudor Court

 

Friday 9 October

Looking at artists engaged by royalty and their courtiers between 1485 and 1603 - from the reign of Henry VII to the death of Elizabeth I; artists such as Marcus Gheeraerts The Younger, Hans Holbein The Younger, Nicholas Hilliard, Levina Teerlinc, William Segar and George Gower. We will also take a look at the Tudor architecture of this period, the final phase of medieval design from grand houses to small cottages.

Seurat

 

Neo-Impressionism: Seurat and Signac

 

Friday 30 October and 6 November

 

09.30-12.30

 

 

 

 

 

 

Neo-Impressionism is a term used to describe the painting theory and technique behind Divisionism and Pointillism.  Georges Seurat's pioneering Pointillism - although he preferred the name Divisionism - became the hottest fashion in French painting during the 1880s and 90s. After his premature death in 1891, the style was actively promoted by Paul Signac.  We will be looking at works by these two artists, as well as those they inspired such as Camille and Lucien Pissarro, Henri-Edmond Cross, van Gogh, Matisse, Charles Angrand, Jean Metzinger and Maximilien Luce.

 

 

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.

Mondrian

 

Piet Mondrian and de Stijl

 

Friday 20 November

 

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.
