An evening of talks on ‘forgotten’ Camden Town Group artist John Doman Turner – 13th May 2017

Poster promoting an evening of talks on the 'forgotten' Camden Town Group artist John Doman Turner and the Walberswick Scroll.

We are excited to announce that the Walberswick Local History Group have invited us to talk about our research and findings on the ‘forgotten’ Camden Town Group artist, John Doman Turner (1871 – 1938).

We will be joined by Esther Freud, author of ‘The Sea House‘. Her book tells the story of Max Meyer an artist who walks around a village, drawing and painting almost every house he can see, his art becomes a ‘paper witness to the lives of the village’s inhabitants’, guided in his work by letters from a ‘great artist’ Cuthbert Henry. These characters were inspired by the written correspondence between Spencer Gore and John Doman Turner. The work inspired by Turner’s own panoramic view of the village known as the Walberswick Scroll.

The group meets four times a year for lectures on a wide range of historical topics with a local bias. This event takes place in the Walberswick Village Hall from 7.30pm – 10.00pm on Saturday 13th May 2017.

There will also be a unique opportunity to view the Walberswick Scroll during the day at The Heritage Hut. There will be three showings 10am, 11am and 12noon. Free to all.
