Art Lecture at United Reform Church

“THE GRAND MANNER - JOSHUA REYNOLDS AND THOMAS GAINSBOROUGH”

Speaker, Peter Scott

 

A fortnight ago, over forty members and their friends attended a very interesting lecture on these two famous British painters. The lecturer started the talk by describing Joshua Reynolds's most famous works, primarily his portraits of high society figures, and his influence on other painters of his time. This was followed by a description of Thomas Gainsborough's works, primarily portraits but also a few landscapes.

There were several questions from the floor and the lecture was much enjoyed by all those attending.
