Description

With a major new exhibition on the life and work of Edward Bawden at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, this talk from Jo Walton looks at the long life and versatile career of this delightful artist.

After training at the Royal College of Art in the 1920s, Bawden would turn his skill to the making of murals, adverts, book illustrations, wallpapers and prints, alongside stunning watercolours and lino-cuts. He created posters for London Transport, advertising campaigns for Shell and Fortnum and Mason, and murals for Morley College and the Oxford bookseller, Blackwell’s.


Based for much of his life in the village of Great Bardfield in Essex, Edward Bawden was a key member of the artistic community that developed there. In this talk we’ll explore the different facets of his work, including his time as an Official War Artist, and see how his unerring sense of design fed into the delightful variety of his illustrations, paintings and prints.

JO WALTON, who works across the UK and Europe, has lectured for many years for The Arts Society (formerly NADFAS), The Art Fund and local art groups around the country. For twelve years she was a guide to Tate Britain and Tate Modern and has combined lecturing with a career in publishing.


Tickets include a glass of wine.
