Event description

Description

Drawn from Life is a celebration of Augustus John’s contribution to British art of the 20th century and the opportunity to marvel at his extraordinary use of line, colour and form to create art of timeless beauty. With works drawn from a wide range of museums and galleries, including the National Portrait Gallery and Tate, as well as from private collections around the UK, this exhibition is a comprehensive retrospective of a great British artist.

This exhibition of the art of Augustus John looks in detail at his work, particularly in the decades between the two world wars. At his peak, John’s reputation as one of the towering figures in British art was based upon his extraordinary talent, both as a draughtsman and portraitist, as well as his bohemian lifestyle.

The Art Historian and Curator, David Boyd Hancock, author of several books including Paul Nash, Mortal Coil and A Crisis of Brilliance: Five Young British Artists and the Great War will give a talk before leading us around the exhibition.
