As we are not able to hold our meetings at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution at present we have linked up with The Arts Society Kington Langley to offer members a full live online programme of entertaining and informative lectures and virtual tours.
Our monthly talks are held on the first Tuesday of the month. The final lecture before the summer break is;
CEZANNE AND VAN GOGH: DEATH AS A CAREER MOVE
JULY 6, 11:00 - 12:00
with Julia Musgrove
This lecture is part of the Monthly Lecture Series and members will receive a link a day or two in advance. Non-Members are asked to complete the booking form Here…
Van Gogh and Cézanne both made little impact on the public mind during their lifetimes. Van Gogh painted quickly, exploiting the power of vibrant colour to express his emotions. Cézanne’s analytical approach led him to ponder each and every brushstroke. Neither sold much in their lifetime – only their artist friends appreciated the changes they brought into being. In this lecture Julia looks at how the work of Van Gogh and Cézanne went from unsold to blockbuster in the early years of the 20th century because a few brave, but important art dealers and critics decided to sponsor them posthumously.
We are continuing our collaboration with Kington Langley's 2021-22 zoom lecture programme for existing members until we move into more certain times. Programme details to be announced shortly.
