Lecturer - Bertie Pearce


NEXT STUDY DAY Wednesday 30 January


From the beginning of time people have been fascinated by magic and wizardry. From the time of the ancient Egyptians the art of the impossible quickly entered every culture.

Bertie Pearce takes us on a whistle-stop history tour of these mysteries from 3000 BC to the 21st century.  Be careful, you might be amazed and bewitched!  

Bertie Pearce has a BA (Hons) in Drama from Manchester University, and a Diploma Internationale from the École Internationale du Théatre, Jacques Lecoq. He is a member of the Inner Magic Circle, with Gold Star.

We may think of American art as being bold, exciting and very different, not always easy to appreciate or understand.  We follow the development of American painting and sculpture from reliance on European prototypes towards artistic originality.  We go from Hudson River art and evocative landscapes to Abstract Expressionism: from Copley and West via Whistler, Singer-Sargent and Hopper to Pollock and Warhol.

Eveline Eaton is a freelance art historian and Arts Society accredited lecturer. Born in Berlin, she had a successful career as an advertising copy-writer in Germany before her family’s move to London allowed her to follow her dream of a career in Art History.
