 ART APPRECIATION

Fine art is that in which the hand, the head and the heart of man go together. 

John Ruskin 1819 – 1900.

 2018 is here and another exciting year of discovering works of art to look forward to!  Finding out more about something you love is always a joy as is looking back at what you have previously studied.

2017 was the year the group looked at a wide range of artists from the 15c artist Fra Angelico right up to the present time and the art of Tracey Emin.  That was quite a journey! We also looked at two diverse subjects ie African Art and Railways.

This coming year we have plans to look at eight artists all chosen by the group and four subjects one of which is looking at the art held by the Portsmouth Museum Art Collection.

We are a small group with limited spaces but if you would like to know more about the group please contact me.
