Philip Modiano presents J.L. Petit - Britain’s Lost Pre-Impressionist

The event – hosted by Andrew Graham Dixon and Robin Simon – also includes an exhibition of works unseen for more than 100 years.

Philip Modiano’s championing of prolific Victorian water-colourist and pioneering campaigner for the preservation of ancient buildings, Reverend John Louis Petit [1801-1868], continues to raise the profile of this neglected Staffordshire artist. His new book follows on from Petit’s Tours of Old Staffordshire [2019] and Clarke, Petit and St Mark’s – A 19th Century Journey on the Isle of Man, published earlier this year.
