About the Event

PICNIC AT THE SLADE

In 1912 students at the Slade School of Art posed for a photograph during a summer picnic

expedition. It records a galaxy of stars of Modern British Art. This lecture series is about three of

those pioneering artists:

5/11/21 David Bomberg

Bomberg was one of the most talented artists associated with the Vorticist movement (1914-5) but his style changed many times over the course of his life.  From his early avant garde work the experience of the First World War brought about the first of many major shifts in his style; a style which continues to exert influence on some of the most important British painters working today.

12/11/21 Mark Gertler

London-born Mark Gertler gained a scholarship to study at the Slade in 1908 and entered the circle

of the Bloomsbury Group who patronised his art. Good-looking and intense he was the inspiration

for the characters in several novels and was tormented by his love for fellow Slade student Dora

Carrington. At its best his work bears comparison with that of Renoir: conventional in subject but

sumptuously rich in colour.

19/11/21 Dora Carrington

Fascinating as much for her life as her art, Carrington (as she preferred to be known) eventually

formed one corner of a typically Bloomsbury triangular relationship. She entered the Slade in 1910

and her student work showed promise but at a time when it was unusual for a woman to succeed as

a professional artist. The lecture will consider both her unconventional life and her paintings; a

talent that has, perhaps, been overwhelmed by biography.
