Bexhill Museum Lecture: ‘Edward Wadsworth, Painter From The Slade To The De La Warr Pavillion’
Wednesday 26th 2.30pm St Augustine’s Church Hall, St Augustine’s Close. Bexhill.
Edward Wadsworth, a contemporary of Stanley Spencer at the Slade School of Art, was a staunch modernist, contributor to the war effort with his vorticist camouflage ‘dazzle’ ships and, after 1918, a supporter of the British and European avant-garde alongside Ben Nicholson. In 1936 Serge Chermayeff commissioned him to design a mural for the De La war Pavilion; influenced by his love of the sea, it also reflected his interest in surrealism. Shifting between figurative and abstract painting, Wadsworth’s career is a fascinating story of the traditional and the original.
Museum members £3.00, Non members welcome £4.00 (inc refreshments)
