Upcoming Lecture on March 16th at Church House, St. Philips and St. James Church, 60 Painswick Road, Leckhampton, Cheltenham. GL50 2DL.
This lecture will be on Manet, Van Gogh and Japan. Japanese art had an enormous influence on the direction painting took in the latter half of the 19th century. We look at what precisely this influence was and the impact it had on the language of space, colour, form and mark and how this was catalytic in the way European painting developed at that time.
