New exhibition:”Outside In: Abstracting the Landscape” 13 October – 10 November 2017

landscapePoster.inddDuring the twentieth-century, horizons widened for British artists who increasingly found themselves competing within international contexts. To greater or lesser degrees, these artists allied themselves to abstract movements in painting coming out of Paris and New York.

This exhibition of paintings, drawings and prints from the School of Art collection considers how, for landscape artists in particular, personal expression and formal values in picture-making gradually supplanted narrative and representation. We see how artists began to use nature more selectively, going beyond ‘likeness’ as they sought to capture the essence of a place or describe an experience before nature.

The exhibition includes artworks by John Elwyn, Bert Isaac, Graham Sutherland and Keith Vaughan.
