This exhibition brings together the work of four artists working in the 1950s and 1960s, each of whom adopted a distinctive approach to capturing the countryside. John Piper and Robert Tavener are renowned printmakers who produced vibrant and colourful representations of rural life and landscape. Rowland Suddaby caught a countryside undergoing dramatic change, a world of ponds, copses and winding lanes. Garrick Palmer’s dramatic style works with the flow of the landscape drawing out its geometry to challenge our everyday perception. The collection has been put together by Dr Richard Turkington, FRSA, the Director of the mid-century specialists, Fifties Art and all works are for sale. The exhibition will be held at the Chapel, a Grade II listed building converted to provide an intimate gallery and located in the historic Herefordshire town of Bromyard.
