The Norwich School Of Painters

John Crome

A talk by Barbara King for the Ringstead Village Club

They included John Crome, John Sell Cotman, and others who can justifiably be considered masters of 19th century British art and they formed the Norwich Society of Artists which was the first and longest lasting provincial artists association to hold regular exhibitions in Britain.

Is it true that Shakespeare, himself,  graced the stage of St. George’s Guildhall Theatre in 1592? Hard to believe when looking at this Grade I listed building in need of much love, care and renovation. But yes, it is true!
