In The Limelight Talk via Zoom on Thursday 15th April 2021
The next BMHS In The Limelight talk will take place via Zoom on Thursday 15th April at 7.30pm. Dr William Rough will give a presentation entitled ‘Tawdry, Vulgar And The Sentiment Of The Lowest Music Hall‘: The Paintings Of Walter Richard Sickert, c.1888-c.1895.
In the late 19th century, the painter Walter Richard Sickert captured the music halls of London in a series of canvases. His depiction of the architecture, audiences and performers of a selection of London halls, including the Old Bedford, Gatti’s and the Marylebone, bring a unique insight into the ‘magic and poetry’ of the halls.
