Win a copy of Inquisitive Eyes

To celebrate the launch of the new exhibition, Inquisitive Eyes: Slade Painters in Edwardian Wessex, 1900 – 1914 on Saturday 6 February, we are offering you the chance to win a copy of the accompanying book by the exhibition’s curator, Gwen Yarker. The winner will also be invited to the exhibition preview on Friday 5 February.

Inquisitive Eyes reveals for the first time the importance of the Wessex landscape at a pivotal moment in British art. During the early twentieth century, the rural Dorset retreat of Purbeck played host to an informal artists’ ‘colony’ – evidently as significant as St. Ives or Newlyn, but hitherto unrecognised. This ambitious exhibition and accompanying book uncover a ‘lost chapter in British art’, during which the war between modernism and traditionalism was waged.

The book contains fascinating insights into this vital period in British art history, plus beautiful, full colour photographs of works by artists like Philip Wilson Steer, Henry Tonks, William Orpen and Vanessa Bell.

To enter, simply visit the RWA Facebook page and ‘like’ the Inquisitive Eyes competition post. The winner will be selected at 10am Friday 5 February. Good luck!
