Cezanne: private lecture and exhibition at Tate Modern

The exclusive and private lecture at Tate Modern for alumni explored the life and works of Cezanne

Francis Holland School, Sloane Square Alumni Association’s most recent event took place this morning at Tate Modern, when this time the invitation was extended to parents, and History of Art A level pupils.

Guests arrived at Tate Modern’s Starr Cinema for a private and exclusive lecture about Cezanne’s extraordinary legacy, exploring his diverse and expansive works, seeking to understand the artist as a young painter in the south of France, through to his struggles in gaining the recognition and fame he sought in the country’s capital.

Continuing on to the exhibition itself, guests absorbed themselves in Cezanne’s most celebrated works, juxtaposed alongside many works shown for the first time in the UK. Guests spoke of their enjoyment of the lecture and, following on, appreciated the works of Cezanne in context.

A special thank you to our alumni community, some for whom this was their first alumni event, parents, pupils and staff for their support.
