About this Event

A donation of £5 would be greatly illustrated.

Augustus and Gwen John were brother and sister, born in the 1870s and both studied at the Slade School of Art in London. His work has been called brash and shallow, and hers dismissed as fussy and spinsterish. These assessments are not really fair to either artist, and this lecture takes a careful look at their lives, up to the point of Gwen’s death in 1939. At that time, she had no public reputation whatsoever, and her brother was enjoying enormous professional and critical success. By the time he died however, the positions had been reversed.
