'Theo and his Monsters'
By Michael Howard
Thu 17th Dec, 7pm - 8pm
Museum of Wigan Life / Facebook / @WiganMuseum
Theodore Major (1908-1999) was a Wigan born artist.
In 1994, five years before he died, Theodore wrote ‘I am still busy painting - it’s my only escape from all the cruelty in the world, but I must express it all in paint’.
With incredible energy he produced around 300 extraordinary works, his ‘Monster’ paintings, into which he poured all the pain, anger, humour, frustration and love that had nourished a lifetime’s dedication to his art.
Michael Howard is a writer and lecturer. He has written numerous books, including 'L.S. Lowry, A Visionary Artist' and 'Ghislaine Howard, the Human Touch'. He is currently working on a major publication dedicated to Theo, 'Walking on Fire'.
