A New Hope, a New Jerusalem: An Artistic Response to a Century of War (Talks)
Thursday 20th March, 6pm
Two industrialised world wars forged a shared experience of suffering and conflict in Britain. In different ways artists sought to acknowledge the personal tragedies of war with an uncompromising honesty, bound up with a spiritual and political re-articulation of hope and nationhood. Rupert Toovey will explore how a range of Modern British artists responded to this challenge and the place of Stanley Spencer’s work at the Sandham Memorial Chapel in this movement.
£8.50 (Friends £7, Students £7.50) Includes a glass of wine courtesy of the event sponsor, Toovey’s Antique & Fine Art Auctioneers.
