Would You Like a Talk about Clare White?

We love to talk about Clare White.  She was quite the eccentric and lived her life as a true ‘Edwardian English lady’ right through to the 1990s! She attended finishing school in Lucerne, Switzerland, watched goat racing in Barbados, masqueraded as a married French woman in war-torn Paris and travelled the world alone with her easel and paintbox. White was a pioneer as a woman artist – she was one of the first female students allowed to paint life models at college and became the St Ives Art Club’s first female president in 1954. She was extremely active in the St Ives art community and a friend of Barbarba Hepworth,  Bernard Leech and other important artists. If you would like us to come along to your group, dinner or event and give a bright and beautiful illustrated talk about Clare White’s life and work, please e-mail us at info@clarewhitegallery.co.uk or call 01709 871038. We ask a modest fee which we are happy to discuss with you.
