Event Details

“Gwen and Augustus John – Two Great Opposites” Frank Woodgate

Tate Britain’s exhibition at the end of 2004 compared and contrasted the works of these two famous siblings. Augustus said after Gwen’s death in 1939 that in 50 years he would be remembered as her brother, rather than as a great artist in his own right. That exhibition and this lecture enable viewers to make up their own minds.

Frank is a lecturer and a guide at Tate Britain and Tate Modern, lecturer for the Art Fund, the National Trust, and other organisations.

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.
