Piano Nobile present Cyril Mann - The Girl in the Green Jumper
Coinciding with the launch of the publication a display of Cyril Mann's work will be on view at Piano Nobile. A private view will be held on Thursday 28th April following a book launch at Daunt's, Holland Park.
When the painter Cyril Mann met his wife-to-be Renske van Slooten in 1959, a significant new chapter in his career began. A bright-eyed art student newly arrived in London from Dutch Indonesia, she inspired a decade of vivid, light-infused paintings. Mann's subjects of the period include his young bride (clothed and unclothed), himself and a host of still lifes, all painted in an original neo-Turneresque style. To celebrate the publication of Renske's memoir, The Girl in the Green Jumper, Piano Nobile has brought together a significant group of Cyril Mann's paintings made between 1960 and 1967.
