Inquisitive Eyes: Slade Painters in Edwardian Wessex, 1900 – 1914
Discover great British artists like Augustus John, William Orpen and John Everett in this stunning exhibition of landscape painting. Inquisitive Eyes captures a key moment in British art history, and the pivotal role that the Wessex landscape played in it. Full of windswept moors, jewel-like pools and tumultuous seascapes, this exhibition will transport you to the glorious Dorset countryside.
Running alongside Inquisitive Eyes, Imagined Landscapes explores the role of artist as cartographer and geographer. In this group exhibition, contemporary painters, sculptors and photographers explore themes around space, place and landscapes.
