The course examines the art and lives of three women artists in Britain and France in the nineteenth and early-twentieth century Dame Laura Knight, Rosa Bonheur and Doris Hatt. Laura Knight produced brilliant art over many decades, encompassing the Newlyn School, circus performers and gypsies, and the Nuremburg trials.

Rosa Bonheur was the most successful woman artist of the nineteenth century: A great favourite with Queen Victoria, she painted horses, lions, and even Buffalo Bill! Doris Hatt spent the majority of her life in Clevedon. Recently rediscovered, she fervently embraced European modernism.

Residential Fees From: £348.   Non Residential: £233
