This will be a very interesting and stimulating weekend of art history in and around Suffolk. The weekend will focus on three main artists: John Constable, Thomas Gainsborough and Sir Alfred Munnings.
You will have an opportunity to visit various locations used by the artist, view some of their paintings and learn how various techniques were adopted by the artists to complete their work.
The weekend will consist of a series of stimulating lectures, tours and site visits to provide you with an insight to the work of Constable, Gainsborough and Munnings.

Bill Teatheridge is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable expert on the history of art in area, having recently obtained a PhD in Art History at Essex University where he also lectures on early renaissance art and Botticelli. He now bases a lot of his work with the Munnings collection in Dedham as a curatorial researcher, currently analysing Munnings' drawing techniques and painting compositions. Bill has lived in the area all his life and has an excellent insight and appreciation of the local artists and countryside.
