Dukeries Decorative and Fine Arts Society

by | 1 June 2017 | Art, Retford, Rotherham, Sherwood

The Dukeries Decorative and Fine Arts Society’s next meeting is on Wednesday 3rd May at 1.50pm in St Anne’s Church Hall, Worksop S80 1NJ. The lecture will be on ‘Marc Chagall’s Poetic Vision and the Russian Revolution’ by Frank Woodgate.

During his long life (he died in 1985 at the age of 98), Chagall managed to combine images from his own life, including his happy marriage, with significant themes such as Judaism, Christianity and the Russian Revolution. His style had a childlike innocence about it, while incorporating elements of avant-garde movements such as Cubism and Expressionism to produce joyous and powerful images.

The Society’s 7th June lecture will be on ‘The Art and Culture of fin-de-siècle Vienna’ by Gavin Plumley.
Visitors are very welcome to come to the meetings at a cost of £6 per lecture. There is a free car park at the hall. For further details of the full lecture programme and about the Society, please speak to Anthony on 01909 731415 or Gill on 01909 540506 or see www.eastmidlandsnadfas.co.uk/dukeries.
