Chaired by Frances Spalding.
Edward Burra is a painter who does not fit neatly into conventional art histories, so it is hardly surprising that he appeals to Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry, best known for his ceramics, with their incongruous juxtaposition of decoration and form, and his transvestite alter ego, Claire. Jane Stevenson, Burra’s biographer, rehabilitated his life and a large body of highly original, modernist work. They discuss why this appealing artist, unafraid of bad taste and drawn to scenes of city life, has been unfairly neglected. With Frances Spalding, biographer and art historian." (christiguc)
