Modern British Art 2022
This summer’s Modern British exhibition will follow our usual pattern, opening at the gallery in June and then will partially transfer to the Masterpiece fair in Chelsea. For this year TEFAF Maastricht is also in June, Friday 24th – Thursday 30th, which has given us the unique challenge of presenting at two top quality art fairs that overlap. Our Modern British collection has many highlights and is built around some wonderful pictures and sculptures from three private collections, all not seen publicly for a very long time. From a London collector we have known for over 30 years we have a remarkable group of major works led by an exceptional Terry Frost. From another collection we have an exceptionally rare William Nicholson painting of his wife Edie and a very large Hitchens, and then we include several works that underline the rich variety of the Nicolas and Frances McDowall collection.
As ever our group of sculptures is diverse and of particular interest note the extremely rare Moore Mother and Child on Ladderback Chair and a large Family Group originally acquired from Moore by Sir Kenneth Clark. As always rare early Chadwicks are part of our collection.
