Hampstead’s Pioneers of Modern Art

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 the Slade School artists. In Downshire Hill we learn of the artistic Carline family and will also discuss the role that Roland Penrose, Margaret Gardiner and Fred and Diana Uhlman played in the art world in the years leading up to, and during, the Second World War.
