Talk and afternoon tea. Painted love – Picasso’s women
Talk | The Kippington Centre
Friday 18 November 2016 - 14:00
Daphne McKerrell is well-known to students at Queen's University, Canada’s Herstmonceux campus, where she has lectured in History of Art for many years. Daphne will give an illustrated talk designed to complement the Picasso Portraits exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. Whether you’ve been to this wonderful exhibition or are planning to do so, you will not want to miss Daphne’s talk, exploring the relationship between the artist and his muse. For Picasso, a new lover meant a new style and, through his paintings of Fernande Olivier, his wife Olga Khokhlova, Dora Maar and Marie-Thérèse Walter, Daphne will investigate this significant aspect of his portraiture.
This event has been organised by the Kent Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
