With Peter Vass, Fellow at Oxford Brookes University.

One of a series of three talks on British women painters on Thursdays in May-June 2024.

Evelyn Dunbar (1906-1960) is best remembered as the only woman to be given salaried status as a full-time war artist in World War 2.

Dunbar produced several major works now principally held in the Imperial War Museum. However her post-war work, particularly her landscapes, have only recently received the accolades they deserve.

This is the second of three in the Making a Mark series of talks about British women painters. Other talks in this series are:
Winifred Knights - Thu 30 May
Joan Eardley - Thu 13 Jun

Booking is essential.
