History of Suffolk Artists from the 19th and 20th Centuries



Working thematically and by location, from clouds to sea, churches to fields, this course examines how artists have responded to the county of Suffolk primarily during the 19th and 20th centuries. The art examined during the course comes from a variety of genres and artists and includes John Constable and Cedric Morris. Throughout the day, women artists will not be ignored like Mary Potter, Maggi Hambling, and Peggy Somerville. A trip out to an important Suffolk location will be included. About the Tutor: Sue Pownall Sue Pownall is an international exhibiting artist producing commissioned drawings and paintings for private collectors. Moreover, she is an illustrator. Clients include the National Trust and Gemelli Press. Sue works as an art tutor and has been giving courses and talks on art appreciation since 2015.
