Through An Artist's Eye is an Arts Council funded project - an artistic and poetic response to the life and work of British artist Felicia Browne, who volunteered in the Republican militia at the start of the Spanish Civil War in the Summer of 1936. Tragically she lost her life on her first mission, aged 32. The project draws on Felicia’s letters and sketches of the period, once lost but rediscovered in the 1990s by Professor Tom Buchanan (of Oxford University) who is our academic partner. Examples of these works are contained in the Felicia Browne archive at Tate Britain.
The evening will include: an introduction to the artist's life by Professor Tom Buchanan, a poetry reading by Jenny Rivarola, and a film presentation.
We will focus on Felicia's artistic response to the Spanish Civil War.
