Upper Sixth Art students visit Chichester

On Friday the Upper Sixth Art students visited The Pallant House Gallery in Chichester to view a retrospective of the painter David Bomberg and the sketchbooks of Paula Rego. Bomberg’s work covered early vorticisim through to visceral and moving self portraits and paintings of Jerusalem whilst Paula Rego is a Portuguese artist whose work is often autobiographical.  Her sketchbooks clearly showed the process of constructing a sense of a narrative which is a characteristic of her paintings.
