Lover Teacher Muse or Rival? - Couples in Art

James Russell studied History at Pembroke College, Cambridge, but was galvanised into writing about art after a lengthy stint selling contemporary paintings and sculpture in New Mexico. A passionate advocate of twentieth-century painting and design, he writes and lectures widely and has curated two exhibitions at the Dulwich Picture Gallery. In this lecture James explores what happens when two artists set up home together. Who does the housework? Who gets the glory? Love inspires creativity but so, sometimes, does the fading of love. The private lives of artist couples are often startling and never dull, and the paintings and sculpture described here are glorious.
