Lecture Topics

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.

About the tutor

Nick Pearson

Nick is an internationally exhibited artist and an enthusiastic lecturer. He has a passion for art of all period and teaches at various levels in schools, colleges, universities and adult learning centres; including

  • London College of Contemporary Art
  • Richmond Art School
  • OPEN Ealing
  • University of Oxford
  • Northampton University
  • Bradford College of Art

His artistic practice encompasses sculpture, drawing and photographic work. He creates large, wall-based works which explore formal relationships through shape and colour, often with a kind of abstract visual humour – but as in all collage, each constituent part has its own history and poetic meaning. Nick uses everyday objects in his artwork which he has often found or which have been discarded.
