Painters of Provence


Wednesday March 7th 2018

Ms Juliet Heslewood

This lecture tied in with our Society’s trip to Provence in April.

In her richly illustrated lecture, Juliet explained how the development of the French railway network in the mid nineteenth century encouraged artists to leave Paris and join fellow artists working in such areas as Provence. Features of the work of the newcomers included using more vivid colours.

Besides examining the work of Cezanne, van Gogh and Gaugin, she introduced the audience to local artists including Leo Lelee and Monticello.
