You go to a gallery and are stopped dead by a wonderful picture but you have never heard of the artist. This lecture will consider some of the reasons for a good artist’s obscurity, from the brevity of his life to the misfortune of his being born and working in the shadow of a larger reputation, such as Leonardo or Rembrandt. But above all it is an excuse to spend an hour gazing at beautiful paintings and finding hidden treasures. Friday 17th June 2022 at Barnwell Village Hall at 11am The Golden Age of British Landscape painting: 1750 to 1850 Susan Owens We look at the great era of British landscape painting, from its origins in the Arcadian views and picturesque scenes of 18th-century artists Richard Wilson and Thomas Gainsborough, through John Constable’s sparklingly fresh observations of nature, to dramatic paintings by JMW Turner and intensely detailed studies by members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.
