Liss Llewellyn presents - Private & Public: Finding the Modern British Garden
The interwar period in Britain saw a flowering of artists who retreated to planting and painting in their gardens – their own private havens. Conversely, this time also saw a number of artists engaging with public green spaces amidst a growing interest for recreation. From fireworks and fairgrounds to picnics and parties, these paintings captured a new, modern experience of spending leisure time in nature.
This exhibition will bring together intimate depictions of gardens and greenhouses, public parks and favoured plant specimens by artists of this era including Charles Mahoney, Evelyn Dunbar, Eric Ravilious and Ithell Colquhoun.Tickets: £14.00 (Concession: £8.00 )
