Aldeburgh Library: East Anglian Artists


Sorry, registration has ended.

East Anglian, and particularly Suffolk, has been a welcome home for many artists and sculptors over many years. This course explores and celebrates the artistic achievements, by both men and women, by looking at the different styles and approaches from the early Traditional artists such as Leonard Squirrell to the plein air creations by Harry Becker and the post war “kitchen sink” dramas by Colin Moss and others in the 1950’s. We will examine the work of Anna Airy, the first female war artist in the First World War and several sculptors such as by Bernard Reynolds and Maggi Hamblin alongside important printmakers. We will look at many other artists that remain relatively unknown beyond the region. Andrew Casey produced a small book on the life and work of Anna Airy to accompany a special exhibition at the University of Suffolk in 2014 to mark the start of the First World War. He has been a member of the Ipswich Art Society for over thirty years and is currently Deputy Chairman For further details on how to book and fees contact: foalaldeburgh@gmail.com
