Dillington House: Friday Lunch & Lecture – Guernica: The Greatest Painting in the World

October 29 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Friday Lunch & Lecture  with Wayne Bennett

– Guernica: The Greatest Painting in the World

Arguably the greatest painting of the 20th century, Picasso’s Guernica was a defiant statement hewn out of the barbarity of civil war in Spain yet painted in a loft many hundreds of miles away in Paris.

Wayne will describe the significance of this great painting and why he thinks it is worthy of the accolade — the greatest painting in the world.

Wayne is Co-Director of the Dillington Summer School and continues to originate and tutor courses for Dillington and elsewhere. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. For two years he worked for the Contemporary Art Society based at the Tate Gallery after which he moved to Dorset. For 23 years he led the team at Dillington House until his retirement in early 2015. He now divides his time between his many research interests – archaeology, cartography, cultural history, music and art

Lecture Tickets£25 .. Includes lunch, served from 1pm. Lecture begins at 2pm.
