Join this audio description tour and learn more about this recent addition to our collection

William Stott (1847–1900) was a leading figure among the group of British artists influenced by French naturalism in the closing decades of the nineteenth century. It was his painting Le Passeur that established Stott’s international reputation. With its decorative surface effects and enigmatic stillness, the painting came to influence the style and subject matter adopted by other British artists.

Led by Marcus Dickey Horley, the talk takes place seated in the William Stott of Oldham: Le Passeur (The Ferryman) display. Sighted companions and guide dogs are welcome. Hearing loops and amplifiers for those needing some extra support galleries are available.
