Degas and Rodin Clare Forde-Wille Thursday 23 November 2017

The special interest day commemorates the centenaries of the deaths of Edgar Degas and Auguste Rodin who both died in 1917. Camille Claudel was Rodin's pupil and interest in her life and career has come to prominence recently with the opening of her family home as a museum of her work. We will explore the relationships between these three fascinating and influential Artists and their wide ranging important work in all media.

Clare Ford-Wille is an independent art historian. She had led study tours to Europe and lectured on European art, architecture and sculpture for more than thirty years.

Clare has kindly agreed to replace Eric Shanes who died suddenly earlier this year.

The day consists of two lectures in the morning with a coffee break and one lecture after lunch. Lunch is not provided.
