with Fiona Fitzgerald

MARCHING IN TIME WITH MODERNISM

Wednesday 30th May 2018 - 10:30 am

This talk celebrates the re-opening of Kettles Yard, Cambridge and connects with the Picasso 1932 exhibition at Tate Modern.

Emerging from the shadow of the Great War, the Thirties were catch up time for British Art. Encouraged by closer connections with European Modernists, adventurous artists gained a new confidence. In this talk, Fiona Fitzgerald will chart how the new art and its collectors generated an aesthetic that is embodied in ‘the home as gallery’ that Jim Ede created at Kettles Yard.
