STUDY DAY: Discover the work of John Aldridge, Edward Bawden, Tirzah Garwood, Bernard Cheese, Kenneth Rowntree, and others associated with the mid-20th century community of artists based around Great Bardfield, Essex.

The group made paintings, prints, books and decorative art; they shared an interest in figurative art and a love of the local Essex landscape. This day explores the careers of individual artists, the work of the pre and post-war periods, and the celebrated 'open house' exhibitions of the 1950s. Speakers include Malcolm Yorke, Frances Spalding and Peter Donovan.
