The Art and Craft of Edward Bawden

With a major new exhibition on the life and work of Edward Bawden at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, this talk from Jo Walton looks at the long life and versatile career of this delightful artist. 

Based for much of his life in the village of Great Bardfield in Essex, Edward Bawden was a key member of the artistic community that developed there. In this talk we’ll explore the different facets of his work, including his time as an Official War Artist, and see how his unerring sense of design fed into the delightful variety of his illustrations, paintings and prints.
