BSA Lecture - John Craxton: A life of gifts

Events • Lecture

This event is organised by the British School at Athens

Artist and adventurer John Craxton (1922-2009) said that life was more important than art – while pouring his sociable existence into ravishing and exhilarating pictures. When finally escaping to Greece after the war he never looked back – celebrating the light, landscapes, heat, food and the people of his adopted homeland in glittering colourist paintings which reworked Cubism and paid homage to both Greek mythology and Byzantine art.
