The Romantic Thread in British Art with Tim Craven


Tim will speak about The Romantic Thread in British Art, drawing on our own exhibition of the three Southampton Pethers images on show in our Collections Gallery.

This talk will consider how and why British artists are innately drawn to a romantic sensibility – and what that might be; and that this trait has consistently re-emerged throughout art history in different guises after repeatedly going out of fashion. 

Tim is the lead curator at Southampton City Art Gallery and as such responsible for one of the best UK collections outside London.

The event will be held in the ground floor cafe which is fully accessible.
