Havant WEA Art Appreciation Course

Art in Britain 1900-1950
This spring, a full class enjoyed an excellent Art Appreciation course that explored many aspects of Art in Britain from the Edwardian age to the First World War and beyond. The lecturer, Prasannajit de Silva, gave the class the opportunity to look at and discuss the work of well-known artists such as Paul Nash, Vanessa Bell and Stanley Spencer to artists such as CD Cadell, Edward Burra and C.R.W. Nevinson.

Members of the class also enjoyed a day trip to Tate Britain in London that encouraged critical appraisal of a variety of chosen paintings. Pransannajit will be returning to lecture for Havant WEA next spring with the course: “The Art of the British Empire”. Details will be available this summer in the Hampshire County brochure
