An introduction to 20th century British art and the Hull collection
Art Fair | Worsall Village Hall
Thursday 16 February 2017 - 14:30 until 16:30
This lecture will form a prelude to the Art Fund visit Hull UK City of Culture. Helen Toplis will tell a story of British Art using examples from the city’s collection. The careful acquisition means that the collection contains a representative selection of many major figures including John, Bell, Wadsworth, Nash, Nicholson, Spencer and Hockney. There are also important sculptural works including Epstein, Moore, Dobson and Hepworth. The diversity of movements ranges from Camden Town to Pop Art.
This event has been organised by the Durham and Cleveland Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
