The Artists of Montmartre - the Pilgrims of Babylon. Douglas Skeggs Thursday 11 April 2019

There is no name more evocative of Bohemian Life; of high spirits, decadence, poverty and revolutionary art in Paris than Montmartre, home to some of France’s greatest artists. Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec & Picasso would paint canvases that would  shake the very foundations of Western art. This lecture charts the course of the extraordinary artistic life in Montmartre.
