Modern British Art 2021
24th June 2021
Last summer’s Modern British exhibition was a significant challenge with the various lock downs restricting access to the gallery. Like all galleries we did what we could online with presentations and videos and virtual reality shows but we know deep down that our friends and collectors prefer the real thing and it is good news that the gallery is now open again. We have made a number of significant acquisitions since the beginning of 2020, and few of you will have been able to see them until now.
In particular we have acquired very important early unique works by Armitage, Butler and Chadwick, all from the 1950s and 1960s, the golden era of British sculpture. Included are paintings and works on paper by Andrews, Auerbach, Bomberg, Clough, Craxton, Heron, Hilton, Kinley, Moore, Perry, Power, Reynolds, Riley, Scott, Sutherland, Vaughan & Wadsworth. Further bronzes included are by Moore, Paolozzi & Turnbull.
