About the group

The aim of the group is to discuss chosen artists and art movements to enable an appreciation of art history.

The monthly meetings involve an illustrated talk on key artists with the group members joining in the discussion of individual works of art.

 There are also organised trips to art galleries and museums throughout the year.

Instead of our usual meeting on Friday, 7th December we will be visiting Prego’s Italian Restaurant for our group annual Christmas Lunch.
Programme 2019 :

The talk on 4th January is entitled “Artists and their Muses” by Pam and looks at the lives and work of the Post-Impressionist painters Édouard Vuillard and Pierre Bonnard.

This will be followed by a visit to The Barber Institute, Birmingham on Tuesday, 15th January to see their exhibition: “Maman: Vuillard and Madame Vuillard” and a proposed visit to Tate Modern on Tuesday, 19th February to see their exhibition: “Pierre Bonnard: The Colour of Memory.”

The talk on Friday, 1st February by Tina Brown is entitled “Interiors of Jan Vermeer and Pieter de Hooch in the Golden Age of Dutch Painting.”

New members are always welcome.
