The English Impressionists

From the announcement in the June 2021 e-news :

Described as the English Impressionists, the group of artists who settled in Newlyn, Cornwall, at the end of the nineteenth century were inspired by the French artistic colonies flourishing in rural and coastal France. Painting outside in the glorious Cornish light, they captured the everyday, groups of fisherman, weddings and funerals and giggling school children.

Art historian Hattie Bennett will introduce us to several artists and their particular focus and technique including Stanhope Forbes and his wife Elizabeth, Frank Branwyn and Henry Tuke. Finally we will move to Lamorna and the younger generation of artists, Alfred Munnings and Harold and Laura Knight.
