Join Nick for a virtual tour of work by Van Gogh and Britain influence on his art.
Friday 6 November
Van Gogh lived in London between 1873 and 1876 and loved it. He arrived as a trainee art dealer and learned a lot in the three years he spent in the city. He saw a lot of art and explored new avenues of life, art and love.
If you missed Tate Britain’s exhibition of Van Gogh’s work in 2019, this is your opportunity to see it. It covers paintings from his time in Britain and France.
Join Nick’s retrospective look at Van Gogh and Britain via Zoom. If you have never used Zoom before, Nick will show you how to download the program and get started.
When you have booked your place, Nick sends you a handout with high resolution images. You can refer to this handout during the lecture and see the images clearly. He projects the images on his studio wall and uses them to point things out as he speaks. After the tour Nick sends you his lecture notes.
The price for the two-hour virtual tour and notes is £20 per person. If two of you join the tour and share a computer screen, the price is £30 for you both. You can pay Nick via bank transfer or cheque. He will send you the details.
