Hugo Grenville
IMAGINATION: The legacy of Romantic painting

Hugo Grenville is a leading British Romantic painter, recognized both sides of the Atlantic as a major Colourist whose dreamy paintings explore the outer world in an inner way. Since 1990 he has held 20 one-man shows at major galleries in London, New York, and Palm Beach, designed fabrics for Liberty’s, taught at the V&A, and painted portraits of leading figures. He was shortlisted for the Threadneedle Prize in 2013, and also writes regularly for The Artist magazine.

Hugo will be talking about how the great Romantic painters, from Delacroix and Turner to Matisse and Bonnard, show us how they re-imagined the world in a deeply personal way, and how this has influenced his own work.
