- Thursday, 7 April 2011 - 18:00
This fascinating exhibition at the Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery is one of a series that explores the notion of British identity in art. It covers a wide range of works by British artists, many of which are drawn from the Tate and other collections in Norfolk, Sheffield, and Tyne and Wear. A lecture entitled 'A Crisis of Brilliance: the Slade School and 20th Century British Art' will be given by Dr Stephen Boyd-Hancock where the careers of Slade alumni Mark Gertler, Paul Nash, Stanley Spencer and CRW Nevinson will be discussed. Stephen will explore the significance of this formative period in the lives of these artists as well as the impact of the Great War and their subsequent careers in the 1920s, 30s, and 40s.
