The painter of sunflowers

Paul Gauguin titled his portrait of Vincent van Gogh “The Painter of Sunflowers” and it took very little time for members to guess the subject of last Friday’s illustrated talk.

The talk was extremely well researched and presented by Lynne Hickin. None of us knew that one of van Gogh’s paintings was actually lost in a bombing, but luckily photographed just before that disaster.

We always meet at ‘All Saints Parish Hall’, Godfrey Road, Skircoat Green from 10:30am to 1pm on Fridays.



Last Friday the turn-out of members was very good, as everyone wanted to draw or paint our model Julie, who was dressed as a Suffragette. She was an excellent model, sitting amazingly still.

We met as usual at All Saints Parish Hall, Godfrey Road.

On the 5th October Dr. Tom Ratcliffe will give an illustrated talk ‘Artists at War’. Our ‘Inspiration’ Exhibition is still on at Hebden Bridge Visitor Centre with more than 50 art works to see and to buy. Open every day 10-5 until the end of September.
