7pm – 9pm, Wednesday 13th December

Tickets £5, redeemable off his book on the evening of the event – ‘A Short Book About Painting’

Limited capacity, tickets must be booked in advance

In his latest book A Short Book About Painting, Andrew Marr wrestles with some of the fundamental questions about painting and creativity. Following a serious stroke in 2013 that left him partially paralysed, Andrew’s struggles with the physical rigours of oil-painting led him to investigate the whole process: inspiration, creativity, taste, beauty and form. Using historical examples of techniques from classical artists to the present day, as well as his own works of art to assert his point, Marr will bring all his famous wit, humility and razor-sharp insight to bear on the creative process for an evening to Cass Art Islington.

Andrew’s talk will be followed by a book signing.
