11 September – Putney
From the Renaissance, through Tudor times and the Baroque period, foreign painters have influenced British art, often being preferred to our own artists. The Arts Society of South West London will explore the reasons why in a lecture by Leslie Primo – who has an MA in Renaissance Studies and lectures at the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery – and how these artists influenced the British School of Painting.
Refreshments from 7.30pm. Dryburgh Hall, Putney Leisure Centre, Dryburgh Road, Putney SW15 1BL. swldfas.org.uk
