Inquisitive Eyes: Slade Painters in Edwardian Wessex, 1880 - 1914
Exciting, full of surprises, new discoveries and important paintings not seen for 100 years
A major exhibition curated by Gwen Yarker
Royal West of England Academy, until 12 June 2016
This major exhibition, curated by Gwen Yarker, gives insight into a lost chapter of British art. It is accompanied by a book, also by Gwen Yarker. The exhibition and the book includes fascinating new research on the influence of Wessex on painters between 1880 – 1914. Well-known names are set alongside artists who were highly respected in their day, but who now deserve to be better known. The exhibition also highlights little-known John Everett, their Slade contemporary, who was at the centre of a fascinating circle of Slade artists, and introduced them to the landscape of Wessex.
