Event description

Description

This talk is given by Ann Clements

Seamstress, acrobat and artist's model, Suzanne Valadon posed for Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec and Puvis de Chavannes. Encouraged by Degas, Suzanne Valadon became a painter. Her son, Utrillo was born when she was 18 of an unknown father. He led an unconventional and deeply troubled life from which he sought escape in drink and his work. The backdrop of their turbulent relationship was Montmartre, the centre of artistic life in Paris.

Coffee at 10am, lecture 10.30 - noon, followed by a complimentary glass of wine
