Tuesday 16th August – Lydia Buaman – “Eugene Boudin – The Man Who Inspired Monet.”

Caffe Portico is well known for its Jazz Nights, but less well known are the Art History talks given by Lydia Bauman. These Talks are perfect for art lovers who are keen to learn more about influential artists and the history of their work. We would like to invite you on Tuesday 16th August at 6.30pm to Caffe Portico for one of Lincoln’s hidden gems.

Our summer talk will be “Eugene Boudin – The Man Who Inspired Monet.”

“Eugene Boudin (1824 -1898) was a native of Honfleur who liked to paint the beaches of Deauville and Trouville. It was he who introduced young Claude Monet (1840-1925) to the idea of painting in the open air, setting the scene for the revolution which was Impressionism. We will look at the remarkable work of this unsung hero of Impressionism and examine his influence on the young Monet.”

After the talk a dinner will be served for all those who would like to dine and discuss.

Tickets will be £10 on the door and this includes a hot drink or a glass of wine (at a small supplement)
