“His cabbages are sinister and his barmaids are transvestites. Edward Burra’s watercolours of rural England and Marseilles and Harlem street life are wonderfully distorting.” (Kathryn Hughes, The Guardian 18 November 2011).

Course Participant

In this course, we will consider how this artist, who had a lifelong struggle with rheumatoid arthritis and a debilitating blood disease, and who therefore found it more difficult to paint in the conventional way, was able to produce both satirical and romantic images.
