Cedric Morris & Benton End: Paintings, Plants and Life
Nicholas Thornton — Head of Fine Art, Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales
Cedric Morris (1889 — 1982) was born near Swansea and his direct style of painting flowers, landscapes, birds and people has secured his reputation as one of the most unique talents of twentieth century British art. Alongside his work as a painter, Morris was an accomplished gardener and was one of the leading Iris breeders of his generation. He created an extraordinary garden at Benton End, the house and art school on the Suffolk-Essex border that he shared with his partner the artist Lett Haines. Famous former pupils of Morris’ much-loved but idiosyncratic art school include M...aggi Hambling and Lucian Freud. In this talk Nicholas Thornton, Head of Fine Art at Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, gives an overview of the work and extraordinary life of one of Wales’ most important artists.
Doors and bar open at 6:30pm
Talks Commence at 7:30pm and last approximately one hour
