John Sell Cotman in Norwich & London

Tue 16 Oct, 6pm – Georgia Bottinelli, Castle Museum & Gallery, talk on John Sell Cotman in Norwich & London

Dr Giorgia Bottinelli, curator of historic art at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery gives a talk on a member of the Norwich school of artists – ‘John Sell Cotman in Norwich and London’

These days John Sell Cotman is recognised as one of the foremost watercolourists of the 19th Century. In his lifetime, however, Cotman never achieved the recognition he felt he deserved. So overlooked was he that not one single obituary was published after his death in July 1842. This talk will focus on the last two decades of Cotman’s life when he attempted to make a name for himself first in Norwich and then in London.

Ticket Price £10 (plus booking fee)
