“Post War Australian Painting” Paul Chapman

NB This lecture is on the FIRST Tuesday of April

Western Art from ‘Down Under’ is often overlooked and neglected. Painters like Sidney Nolan and Arthur Boyd from the ‘Heide School’ working in a naïve and expressive style, John Brack’s figurative paintings give a social critic of Australian post-war culture, John Olsen’s celebratory abstract expressions of the landscape, Brett Whiteley’s personal vision of his life in Sydney, Fred Williams’ landscapes and Jeffery Smart’s surreal depictions of urban life are all essential in our understanding and appreciating the modern art of Australia.

Paul is an Art Historian and a National Gallery trained guide with many years of experience working in education. He is also a visiting tutor at Marlborough College and a tutor at MCSS.

Visitors and members of the public are very welcome to attend the lectures. £7.50 for guests or visitors payable on the door.

The Honiton Society is a registered charity (registered charity number 1111757) run by an enthusiastic and lively team.  At our heart is the Lectures Programme with lectures held on the second Tuesday of the month from October to June.  Our lectures are chosen to cover all aspects of the arts and are given by carefully selected lecturers chosen for their expertise and presentation ability.
