About the event
14 local writers read work inspired by the paintings of Edward King, re-imagining historical Portsmouth and exploring links between mental health, storytelling and art.
Known for his paintings of St James’ grounds, King was commissioned by the mayor to paint scenes of the World War II bomb damage to Portsmouth. Admired by his contemporaries, including Van Gogh and Whistler, King faded into obscurity, perhaps because of the stigma of his mental illness.
