Art Appreciation 1 – The Glasgow Boys

25th April 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 27th April 2023 @ 3:00 pm


Tutor: Tim Stimson

An introduction to the art and lives of the Scottish artists – Henry, Guthrie, Crawhall, Hornel and others – who emerged from the rustic realism of the outdoor painting era to develop their individual and striking pictures.

Tim’s involvement in art began with the practical. For a number of years, he was a professional painter and ceramicist in Scotland and Wales, before returning to university to study literature and the history of art. For the last 30 years he has been a freelance cultural/art historian, specialising in 17thand 19th-century art and society. He now lectures for the University of Cambridge, the  WEA, the Art Fund and the Arts Society (formerly NADFAS), and presents residential study courses in Britain and Europe. Tim has now completed two lecture tours of Australia, the last in 2016, and presented a lecture for Hull City of Culture 2017 on T E Ferens, patron of Hull’s newly refurbished gallery.

The second Art Appreciation event this year is from 15-17 August.
