Walking Tour: Pioneers of Modern Art
28 August 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm£9 – £12
In the first half of the 20th century Hampstead was home to some of the era’s most pioneering artists. We will walk in the footsteps of Slade School artists such as: Mark Gertler, Stanley Spencer and R.W. Nevinson (who socialised in Downshire Hill with the artistic Carline family) and discuss the role that Roland Penrose and Fred and Diana Uhlman played in the art world. We will conclude with Modernists such as Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth who lived and worked in Belsize Park and the designers (many refugees) who stayed at the Isokon flats.
This walk is from Hampstead Tube (outside High Street entrance) to near Belsize Park.
Depending on the weather we shall also walk briefly on the Heath so dress suitably.
You may like to visit the exhibition at Burgh House of John Cecil Stephenson before attending this walk. The exhibition is open from 10am.
If you wish to visit the Isokon Gallery before the walk, it is open from 11am-4pm.
