Peter Brown talk at the RA: Figurative Painting in the 21st Century

In the age of phone photography and Instagram, Impressionism provides a perfect counterpoint in the way it captures the rapid pace of modern life. It's visible brushwork en plein air captures the fleeting light and motion of the city in a timeless style that could be the 19th, 20th centuries or today. Peter Brown, the current President of the New English Art Club and leading observational painter will give a talk on the rising importance of figurative painting in the twenty-first century at the Royal Academy, ahead of his solo exhibition opening at Messums London.
