Our speaker on the12th May was Mr Alex Purves who gave us an illustrated talk on visual wit and humour in art. He referred to various artists including Rex Whistler, Lowry and Ruskin Spear and pointed out subtle humour which would not usually be noticed. It was interesting to hear that some painters specialised in the human head whilst others would add the body whilst still others would add the limbs. A vote of thanks was proposed by David McDowall.


Our next meeting at the Methodists is at 10 am on the. 26 th May when Alan Pugh will talk on. "Dei goes to War" . This is the final meeting of the season. The Forum returns in the Autumn on the 8th September as usual at 10 am at the Methodist Church.
