This course is part of Dillington Discovery Summer week.

The house of the Carline Family at 47 Downshire Hill in Hampstead was a mecca for artists between the wars. Richard, Sydney and Hilda Carline were all fine artists, and the latter married Stanley Spencer, a frequent visitor. Other great artists who congregated included Richard Nevinson and Mark Gertler among many others.

We will spend individual days looking at these marvellous artists.
