Love and Romance in Modern British Art

Sophie Cummings, our Curator gave this talk in time for Valentine's Day on Friday 13th of February. Champagne and chocolates gave the talk a festive feel.
The first slide was this one:
It's a Tracey Emin neon picture which I liked a lot, there was another which said 'Those who suffer love', or 'Those who suffer, love' or Those who love, suffer' .
Sophie was looking at depictions of love and romance via art, and  included Vanessa Bell's 'Nude with poppies', Gwen John's 'Woman with a Black Cat'.
Maybe the best is John Bellany's 'Self Portrait with Juliet'.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable talk, with more champers on offer afterwards.
