The Nabis among the Writers

Lunchtime Lecture

Join us for a fascinating lecture by Clément Dessy from Warwick University, who will introduce the Nabi group – to which Édouard Vuillard belonged – explaining its origins and principles, before exploring connections between the Nabis and the writers of the time.

  • This lecture is a change from the one previously advertised, ‘Art and the Maternal’ by Dr Matt Geary, who is unable to present due to illness. We apologise for the unexpected change in programme.
