SPEAKERS (ZOOM) MEETING - 24th February 2021   1.45pm  (email for ID & Passcode)

Brilliant British Humour in the
Forgotten Art of the Picture Postcard: 1840-1950

This talk brings back happy memories and puts smiles on faces. Chuckles and guffaws are guaranteed in these trying times.   Artist-drawn postcards were the most popular art form from the Edwardian era to the outbreak of World War II. They entertained, inspired, instructed, motivated, persuaded and lifted-up the spirits. Discover the popular themes and styles by the masters of the medium such as Mabel Lucie Attwell, Donald McGill and Fred Spurgin among many others; and the reasons why their popularity waned with the British public.

by Dr James Taylor, FRSA
former Curator of paintings, drawings and prints, National Maritime Museum
