Our colleagues from the Arts & Crafts Movement in Surrey are inviting Surrey Hills Society members to:


“Surrey Women Mural artists: Anna Lea Merritt, Mary Watts & Kitty Milroy”

a Lecture by Olive Maggs

Wednesday 17th March
Online via Zoom



Three women mural artists in Surrey represent the nineteenth century passion for mural decoration and the rise of women artists: Anna Lea Merritt at Blackheath, Mary Watts at Compton and Kitty Milroy at Upper Hale. Olive Maggs’ fully illustrated lecture will examine the style, techniques, materials, similarities and differences of their murals.

Olive Maggs BA, MA, PGCE, is an art historian and lecturer having taught and examined Art History for many years. Working on a freelance basis she has contributed to the Watts Gallery Adult Lecture programme on a number of occasions and specialises in the history of women artists, in particular in the nineteenth century. In 2012, she curated an exhibition on Anna Lea Merritt and published a book on the murals of the same artist.

The cost of a ticket is £10 and several household members watching on one device are included.  The price includes a copy of Olive Maggs’ book “Anna Lea Merritt’s Murals: Wall Paintings in a Surrey Church”.   The book will be posted to you as soon as possible to be Covid safe and to avoid multiple trips to the Post Office.
