Terry Frost, William Scott, Peter Lanyon & Patrick Heron - Four Giants of British Modernism
The four artists lived and worked through the harsh time of post-war Britain, and through their art were seeking to convey a new world of hope. They were pioneers of British Abstract Art and were associated with the celebrated St. Ives School.
The abstract works on show in Four Giants of British Modernism are all based on figurative ideas yet seek to highlight the expressive potential of the paint itself, drawing attention to the mark making while retaining the subject matter and imagery.
Beaux Arts Gallery worked with the late artists Sir Terry Frost (RA), William Scott (CBE RA), Peter Lanyon and Patrick Heron (CBE) during their careers and this exhibition offers a retrospective of some of their greatest works created as they revolutionised British Art.
