Augustus John is one of the great enigmas of twentieth-century art. Widely acknowledged in the early 1900s as one of the most talented and promising young British artists, his achievements are now largely overlooked.
This talk will explore his extraordinary rise and fall, from his early success before the First World War, to his slow decline after it.
