We are going to study members of the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing including Cedric Morris. Then we will look at the work of the Great Bardfield Artists of which Eric Ravilious was a member. We will then study the art of Cornwall. Newlyn and St.Ives were home to two of the most important art movements of the 19th and 20th centuries. We will bring our programme right up-to-date by looking at the work of Andrew Goldsworthy and the wider Land Art Movement. If time allows we may also study some artists with Sussex connections. These might include: Eileen Agar,John Bratby,Ivon Hitchens,Paul Nash,Edward Stott and Keith Vaughan.
