  2. LSAG AGM after the lunch(The AGM will aim to start at 3pm at a location near the RA, with an option to join Online via Zoom as well.)

Locations for the Lunch and AGM will be supplied separately to those who have confirmed attendance.

 

The RA summary for the exhibition is:

Degas, Cézanne, Renoir, Van Gogh. You might recognise their paintings, but it’s their radical works on paper we put the spotlight on in this ground-breaking exhibition.

In the whirl of modernity that was late 19th-century France, Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists radically transformed the future direction of art. But it wasn’t just through their paintings. In a subtle but seismic shift, they lifted the status of works on paper – drawings, pastels, watercolours, temperas, gouaches – from something preparatory that you left in a studio, to artworks in their own right.

In this rich exhibition, we bring together 77 works on paper by leading Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists whose innovation would challenge traditional attitudes and ultimately pave the way for later movements like Abstract Expressionism.

 

If you would like to join us and attend the RA exhibition, then IMMEDIATE BOOKING is recommended because some ticket times may be gone. If 11.20am is no longer available and you need to choose a different time, lunch is being booked for 1pm. Those people who are a Friend or a Member of the RA may find more tickets available to them.
