20th century British Art James Russell Tuesday 24 November 2020

Please note the change of date from 11th November to 24th November 2020.

Having studied History at Pembroke College, Cambridge, James Russell sold contemporary paintings and sculpture in Santa Fe, New Mexico, an experience that inspired him to begin writing and lecturing on 20th century art. Of his dozen or so books, one was a Sunday Times book of the year, while his writing has been described by critics as 'insightful', 'informative' and 'enjoyably readable'. The curator of two major exhibitions at Dulwich Picture Gallery, James has lectured across Britain and beyond. He prefers to speak without notes, drawing on wide-ranging original research, and on in-depth knowledge of the subjects that fascinate him. 

This lecture will run the gamut of British Art throughout the 20th century, over the course of the day's three lectures.
