Researching Edward Stott: An Artist’s Journey From Paris to London

Sunday Morning, 1901 (oil on canvas) by Edward Stott, (1859-1918); domestic scene depicting a family surrounding a dining table on a Sunday morning. The mother and father stand to the back of the table, while their three children are seated. A young girl and boy are pictured eating, while an older girl sits with a vegetable in her lap, possibly peeling, whilst the family's cat looks up to her. The paint handling shows impressionist influences in its textural qualities. The light coming through the window casts some light on the children, whilst the parents lurk in shadow.)

During the opening weekend of our summer exhibition, Edward Stott: A Master of Colour and Atmosphere, Dr Valerie Webb, author of the accompanying book by the same title (published by Sansom & Co, 2018), explores Stott’s development as an artist and provides an overview of his career. She will also give an insight into her research for the book and how this contributed to the exhibition.

Signed copies of the book will be available at this talk.
