This well-illustrated lecture will be the first of two, with the second (programmed for 2020) dealing with art of the First World War. The talks will identify some of Britain’s greatest and innovative 20th century artists from the Slade School of Art, including C R Nevinson, Stanley Spencer, Paul Nash, David Bomberg, Percy Wyndham Lewis, Dora Carrington and Mark Gertler. These artists embraced modernity and new ideas from Europe just on the cusp of the First World War. The lectures will place them in their historical and biographical context and reflect on their involvement with the art of the First World War and how they made a considerable impact on the British Art world of the twentieth century. The lecture on the art of the First World War will include some more famous names.

Sarah Phillips, whose earlier career was spent at the Courtauld Institute of Art, is well-known locally as a WEA tutor and lecturer. She is the author of “Virginia Woolf as a ‘Cubist’ Writer.
