Discovering Women Artists 1600-1900
Bernard Allan has a BA (Hons) in History and an MA in History of Art. Having taken early retirement, he commenced a new career as an art history tutor for the WEA and has taught French and British Art of the
18th and 19th centuries, as well as Women’s art, for the past eight years. He lectures at various societies and guides parties around galleries in London and Paris. In addition to teaching he is currently researching 19th century artists working in Sussex with a view to publication. Many of you will remember his excellent talk in April 2018 on ‘Travels with JMW Turner’. This talk promises to be a fascinating insight into the role of women in the history of art.
