The Cézanne effect. Bloomsbury Group and French painting at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries

2021-02-22, 12:00 a.m.
Bloomsbury is not only one of the boroughs of London. This name also covers a group of artists, writers and intellectuals who opened English culture and art in the Victorian era to a new aesthetic and artistic fascination. A special role was played by Roger Fry, who, thanks to his close professional contacts with the French artistic bohemia, became an important link between the Bloomsbury community and the circle of post-impressionists active in France.

The lecture was devoted to three outstanding figures of the French art scene at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries: Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin and Henri Matisse. The importance of their art for the formation of new creative attitudes in the Bloomsbury community were discussed, as well as the reception of their paintings in England at the beginning of the 20th century.

The lecture refers to the exhibition British Bohemia. The Bloomsbury Circle of Virginia Woolf presented at the ICC Gallery from September 15th, 2010 to January 9th, 2011.

The meeting was held online via the Zoom platform.
