Description

In the age of phone photography and Instagram, Impressionism provides a perfect counterpoint in the way it captures the rapid pace of modern life. It's visible brushwork en plein air captures the fleeting light and motion of the city in a timeless style that could be the 19th, 20th centuries or today. So we are delighted that Peter Brown, the current President of the New English Art Club and leading observational painter will join us at the Royal Academy for a talk on the rising importance of figurative painting in the twenty-first century, ahead of his solo exhibition opening at Messums London.

Messums London has long held a powerful reputation as one of the country’s leading British art galleries, not only a pioneer in the field of British Impressionism but also a specialist in exhibiting contemporary British art.

The New English Art Club was formed in a move away from the academic art of the Royal Academy. The NEAC and the British Impressionist movement continues and has gained, along with figurative art generally, a new wider, contemporary audience coming 'full circle' in terms of it's popularity and relevance today.

Brown was elected a member of the New English Art Club in 1998, and became its President in 2018. He is also a member of the Royal Society of Portrait painters, The Royal Institute of Oil Painters, The Pastel Society and is an honorary member of the Royal Society of British Artists.

Join us in the Benjamin West lecture hall at the Royal Academy. Tickets are £20 in advance which includes the talk and a preview drinks party afterwards at Messums London, 28 Cork Street for the first chance to see the new solo exhibition of paintings by Peter Brown.
