Angelica Kauffman




Summer Lodge, Evershot




Monday 28 June 2021

10.00 - 13.00










Our study morning will look at yet another outstanding woman artist: “In 18th-century Europe, Angelica Kauffman was a very successful artist in a largely male-dominated field. In this major exhibition, we trace her trajectory from child prodigy to one of Britain’s most sought-after painters. Angelica Kauffman (1741–1807) was one of the most successful artists of her time and a founding member of the Royal Academy.”


The total cost for the day is £35.00 which includes refreshments on arrival and break and handouts.




Les Nabis




Summer Lodge, Evershot








Thursday 5 August 2021

10.00 - 13.00



Les Nabis were a group of French artists who worked in Paris from around 1888-1900. They were influenced by both Cézanne and Gauguin and produced paintings and decorative artworks that encompassed architectural painting, decorative screens, stained glass, murals, posters, book illustrations and designs for the theatre.


The core members of the group were Paul Sérusier, Pierre Bonnard, Édouard Vuillard, Maurice Denis, Paul Ranson and Félix Vallotton. Their works are very individualistic, although they followed a central theme seeking to produce a spiritual awakening and beauty to the everyday and attempted to follow Denis’ guidelines when he wrote: "Remember that a picture, before being a battle horse, a female nude or some sort of anecdote, is essentially a flat surface covered with colours assembled in a certain order."


Explaining that comment with: "The profoundness of our emotions comes from the sufficiency of these lines and these colours to explain themselves...everything is contained in the beauty of the work."


The total cost for the day is £35.00 which includes refreshments on arrival and break and handouts.
