Lecturer Amina WrightVenue: THE ARTS CENTRE STAMFORD PE9 2DL Nearest car park - Wharf Road PE9 2EBCost which includes coffee: Members £20 Non-Members £25Pleasure and Portraits in Georgian Bath covers the lives of two famous, but very different artists, Thomas Lawrence (1769-1830) and Thomas Rowlandson (1756-1827). Both exceptionally talented draughtsmen, one used his talents to record everyday life and political events with a satirist’s pen, while the other painted glamorous and brilliant portraits of the powerful men and captivating ladies of his day.Thomas Rowlandson was a prolific chronicler of the sillier side of life in Georgian England. His elegant watercolours and etchings of the fashions and follies of his day are still much loved and his political commentary is an invaluable guide to history. Who better to bring to life the bustling spa town of Bath? Come on a tour of Bath with Rowlandson and discover some of the many ways for a Regency fool to enjoy being parted from his money.Thomas Lawrence, a Wonder of the Times, arrived with his family in Bath in 1780. He was eleven years old and already well known for his astonishing skill in drawing likenesses. His extraordinary gift as a maker of fashionable pastel portraits, pencil drawings and copies after Old Masters made him the main breadwinner for his family. Sitters included such celebrities as Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire and the actress Sarah Siddons.Booking contact Roland Higgins Tel:01780 238774 or 07903 420154 Email: email@example.comClick here for further details and a booking form.
