About

The Arts Society welcome Antony Penrose, to The Atkinson in the third lecture from The Arts Society.

An entertaining and amusing first-hand account of a life spent visiting Picasso in this talk by Antony Penrose.

As a child Antony first met Picasso when he visited the Penrose family home of Farley Farm, in Chiddingly, East Sussex in 1950. They became instant friends and invented their own boisterous game of pretend bull fights. In the excitement Antony bit Picasso, and Picasso bit him right back, but it did not spoil the friendship and later Antony took Picasso to see one of his favourite animals, William, the Ayrshire bull. Later when visiting Picasso in the South of France, Antony felt very much at home.

Suitable for age 14+

Welcome in the galleries with a glass of wine at 6pm. The talk begins at 7pm.

Ticket Offer: Buy a ticket for each of the 3 Lecture series for just £15.
Lecture dates included are Mon 25 November, Mon 23 March and Mon 8 June
