Join us for art history lectures by Nick Pearson and learn about the artists behind three current exhibitions running in London. We’ll explore the life and works of Cezanne, Freud and Homer.
Lecture Topics :
- 24 October : Paul Cezanne
- 31 October : Lucian Freud
- 7 November : Winslow Homer
Fee : £10 per person includes light refreshments
24 October : Paul Cezanne
The EY Exhibition is on at Tate Modern until 12 March 2023. The show includes artworks from the artist’s entire career, including pieces never before seen in the UK.
Cezanne’s still lifes, landscapes and paintings of bathers were to give licence to generations of artists to break the rule book. The history of painting was never to be the same again.
31 October : Lucian Freud
This is the first major exhibition of Lucian Freud’s work in 10 years and brings together paintings from more than seven decades. “New Perspectives” is on at the National Gallery until 22 January 2023.
Freud was one of Britain’s finest figurative painters.
7 November : Winslow Homer
The Force of Nature exhibition at the National Gallery is the first overview of this American Realist painter in the UK. The show has over 50 paintings and will be open to the public until January 2023.
Homer’s career spanned a turning point in North American history. He lived through the American Civil War and the abolition of slavery, so-called Reconstruction, and war with the last colonial European power in the Americas, Spain.
Looking forward to seeing you at these in person lectures as we learn about the artists behind three current London exhibitions.
