How do writers draw on forms of art? with Clare Clark, Virginia Baily and Ferren Gipson

Wednesday 22nd May 18:30 at London - Gower Street

The nature of fiction has long been debated across the humanities. How do writers draw on forms of art?

In this event, Clare Clarke and Virginia Baily will discuss their novels, In the Full Light of the Sun and The Fourth Shore. In both novels, set in the early part of the twentieth century, the widespread impact of artistic and historical forces are felt. In Clare Clarke’s novel, it is Van Gogh himself who will bring together three strangers but whose lives will be turned upside down. For Virginia Baily, it is Italy, at the height of its expansionist drive, and the real effect of Italian fascist culture on its twentieth century colony, Libya, its so-called ‘fourth shore’.

Discussing with them the intersection of art history and fiction, will be Ferren Gipson, art historian and host of Art Matters Podcast.
