Gallery hosts Monet art lecture

ADDRESSING art enthusiasts at the Ann Bryant Art Gallery tonight at 7pm, Barry Gibb will be giving a lecture on the famous Impressionist artist, Claude Monet.

Famous for his paintings of water lilies, Monet was a leading artist in the 1870’s Impressionist movement which saw colour and light overtake form.

Impressionism is known to be the first modern movement in the art world, whereby artists applied brush-strokes loosely and colour replaced real objects, retaining the lively spontaneity of sketches and capturing the mood of the moment.

IMPRESSIONIST ART: One of Claude Monet’s Impressionist paintings of water lillies.

Gibb will explore the ins and outs of this artistic movement through an interesting powerpoint presentation, revisiting the world of Impressionist artists.

Entry fee is R40 per person with wine and fruit juice available for a small donation.
