Description

Nature, Humanity and Euphoria: The Beautifully Strange World of Manchester's Annie Swynnerton

Join gallery guide John Ward for a tour of our exhibition Painting Light and Hope and discover the art of Annie Swynnerton, the first woman artist ever to be elected to the Royal Academy of Art.

The first retrospective for nearly a century of the Manchester born painter, a pioneering professional artist who challenged convention in art and life. Painting Light and Hope features 36 paintings from across Swynnerton’s career, including 13 from Manchester Art Gallery’s collection with further loans from public galleries including the Royal Academy Collection, Tate and the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool. The exhibition also features a number of rarely seen paintings on loan from private collections.
