Art Appreciation

Our group continues to flourish after the departure of its much valued, leader Roy Evans but I am pleased to take on the role. At each meeting of the group, after a brief introduction we share and discuss contributions – typically notable works of art – brought along by members.

Recently we have studied the works of Antonio Canal, Canaletto and Francesco Guardi, from the Venetian School. Another meeting focused on Aubrey Beardsley, a magnificent draughtsman and designer. Charles Rene Macintosh, architect, designer and painter and his wife Margaret whom he acknowledged as a genius – both of them instrumental in Art Nouveau – have also claimed our studious attention.
