Samuel Palmer – Romance and mystery in rural England

A society called “The Ancients”, strange shadows under the moonlight, romantic visionaries in a small Kent village…. No, not another adaptation of Agatha Christie but the story of artist and writer Samuel Palmer.

Palmer, a follower of William Blake, created paintings and woodcuts that instil magic into the English countryside. He painted the landscape of Shoreham in Kent with a mystical vision and bridged the gap between Blake and JMW Turner.

Join me in this talk and enter the fairy grotto that is the world of this unique English landscape artist.
