Art Appreciation II – Swedish Impressionism: Art & Society Transformed

15th August 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 17th August 2023 @ 3:00 pm


Tutor: Tim Stimson

The Opponents can be likened to Swedish Impressionism, with Carl Larsson and  Anders Zorn, amongst other significant artists, evolving new ways of depicting their world, whilst concerned that their art should also contribute to a more enlightened society.

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 17th and 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 first Art Appreciation event this year is from 25-27 April.
