Late C19th - Sculpture - Contemporary Response

George Shaw & Thomas Bewick - Children Riding Gravestones

This exhibition combines the work of two English artists, George Shaw and Thomas Bewick. The latter is a historical figure, working around the turn of the 19th century, renowned for his wood engravings, especially natural history illustrations of birds and other animals. Shaw on the other hand, emerged as an artist during the 1990s with a distinct figurative style, depicting everyday suburban scenes in modelling paint. Since then he has consistently produced paintings loaded with atmosphere, at once compelling and uneasy, often in the light of evening or an overcast sky.
