Professional artist Philip Richardson will give a talk on Impressionism at the Foakes Hall in Great Dunmow on the evening of Wednesday 21st February.
A lot has been written, talked about and produced on Impressionism, but Philip Richardson, a professional artist, brings a new angle on the subject through the eyes of an artist.
The word impressionist is a very loose description used to describe any sketchy colourful manner of painting, yet the Impressionist movement, with artists such as Monet, Renoir and Manet was a precise period in art history.
So what exactly was Impressionism with a capital ‘I’, when did the movement begin and why? When did it end and also why? These are the questions Philip will address in this illustrated talk.
Philip’s talk will be at the Foakes Hall in Great Dunmow, from 7.30pm until 9.30pm. The cost is £1 for members of Dunmow Art Group and £5 for non-members.
Dunmow Art Group has a long history of supporting artists and art lovers in and around Dunmow and has a regular programme of weekly art meetings and monthly visiting artists.
