Swanage Art Trail walks 3/5 May

Swanage & Purbeck Walking Festival
The Swanage Seen Art Trail Walk

Why did Augustus John come to Swanage to paint? Who was Charles Conder? His painting of Peveril Point hangs in Tate Britain. See the picture by Walter Field, hung in the Royal Academy 1873 and used by Southern Railways to advertise Swanage Beach for health and pleasure. Paul Nash & Graham Sutherland both painted in Swanage in the 1930s and also illustrated the iconic Shell Guide to Britain. Who was Mark Gertler, who wrote to Dora Carrington from Peveril House? and painted here in 1916. Learn this and much more on two guided Art Trail Walks as part of the Swanage & Purbeck Walking Festival.
