2017 Halesworth Arts Festival - Edward Seago: Lecture

Organised by: Halesworth Arts Festival
Venue: The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth IP19 8BY link
2017 Halesworth Arts Festival - October 7th - 22nd. This afternoon James Russell returns to the Festival to talk about Seago - "from the Circus to Sandringham". After his sellout talk on Eric Ravilious last year, James Russell returns to the Festival to tell us about Edward Seago.
Like L S Lowry, Seago was immensely popular but disdained by critics. Today the best of his landscapes look fantastic, while his life story is full of interest. A prolific author, he overcame childhood illness before running away with the circus. He also mixed in aristocratic circles, making friends among the Royal family. A colourful wartime career and a trip to Antarctica aboard the Royal Yacht add to this fascinating account.
Seago is much loved by artists, and here we will explore a number of his finest paintings in detail, looking at his choice of subject, design and technique.
SEATING IS UNRESERVED FOR THIS EVENT, WHICH IS NOT PART OF THE FESTIVAL DISCOUNT SCHEME.
