On Tuesday 26 January, Cumberland Lodge is hosting a special interest arts morning for The Arts Society Runnymede, from our broadcast studio, exploring the city of Nice as a source of artistic inspiration.
Join us on Zoom to explore the life and work - in words and pictures - of artists such as Matisse and Dufy.
The event features live-streamed introductions from our hosts, Canon Dr Ed Newell (Chief Executive of Cumberland Lodge) and Diana Poll (Joint Chair of The Arts Society Runnymede), two illustrated talks by our guest speaker, The Rt Revd Christopher Herbert (former Bishop of St Albans), and a live Q&A session to get involved with at the end, using the Q&A function on Zoom.
There will be a short intermission between the two talks.
The Rt Revd Christopher Herbert was Bishop of St Albans until his retirement in 2009, and he is now a well-established art lecturer and a Member of the House of Lords. He lives in Surrey and has been invited to speak across the UK and in Europe, including as a guest lecturer at the National Gallery, Westminster Abbey, the Courtauld Institute and the Salisbury International Arts Festival.
Christopher was drawn to the warmth and beauty of Nice from childhood, and he is now a regular visitor to the South of France. He has a particular interest in Christian art and is also a sought-after speaker and adviser on issues of spirituality and the ethics of end-of-life care.
He is also a prolific writer and gives guided tours of London’s major art galleries, and he is a Visiting Professor at the University of Surrey.
