British painter Rosa Branson MBE in conversation with Professor Elizabeth Stuart from the University of Winchester

British painter and fabric designer Rosa Branson MBE talks about her life, inspirations and the challenges she has faced and overcome.

Early in her career, Rosa (born in 1933), was told that she could not be a professional painter. To do so it was necessary to paint for 6 hours a day and as a female it was only appropriate for her to paint small images. Rosa defied this and has spent the last 57 years painting for 7 hours a day on huge canvases that dominate space and demand attention.Free to attend but booking is essential.
