Talk – April 2017

April’s talk charts the progress over 3,000 years of movements and people through a beautiful part of France – Provence.  It follows stories of the Romans, the early Christians, 19th Century painters such as Cezanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin, 20th  Century writers such as Edith Wharton and Somerset Maugham.

The talk will be given by Caroline Rayman.  Caroline has lectured for many years to universities and art organisations in America and on cruise boats. She was an official guide at the British Museum and has published articles on samplers. Her lectures range from the role of the royal mistress in history to more scholarly lectures on Frederick the Great of Prussia.
