The lecture profiles a group of Scottish artists who painted around the turn of the 20th century. Several had been long standing friends, indeed some hadÂ even been at school together. Â They were deeply influenced by contemporary painting in France, and several painted there before World War I. They rapidly developed a distinctive style of their own, using big square brushes and thick paint and bold colours.Â
Lecturer Julian Halsby is a practising artist.Â He was formerly on the teaching staff of the Croydon College of Art and has become a specialist on late 19th century painting. He is also Keeper of the Royal Society of British Artists.
