Henry Lamb: Out of the Shadows

The Salisbury Museum

26 May – 30 September 2018

 

Discover a major – but neglected – figure of early 20th-century British art in a new retrospective.

Henry Lamb, Self Portrait, 1932

Known for his unusual portraits, Lamb became one of the leading British figurative painters of the first half of the 20th century.

Patron of Stanley Spencer and close friends with Augustus John and members of the Bloomsbury Group, he co-founded the post-impressionist Camden Town Group in 1911 which frequently met in the studio of Walter Sickert.

He was also an accomplished musician, trained as a doctor and his friends described him as a well-read and erudite conversationalist.

Despite the significant influence he had on the work of his more famous contemporaries, Lamb himself is little known today.

In this first major retrospective since 1984, the full range of his talent as a painter is explored, including his townscapes and landscapes, early pictures of Ireland and Brittany, and the work he produced as a war artist in both the First and Second World Wars.

As well as exhibiting many works from the Artist’s Estate, the exhibition also includes loans of important works from museums and galleries across the country.

This exhibition is part of RA250, supported by Art Fund.

Josie Eastwood Fine Art  Exhibition 

regular exhibitions – have a look at her website to see what is coming up next

Josie Eastwood Fine Art has a different formula to most galleries.

We hold four annual exhibitions which are hung around our home, with the intention of showing work of a wide range of artists and subject matter, within a relaxed environment.

The two main shows are in October and May, with a Little Picture Show in December and a Decorative two day sale in June. During the Spring Exhibition in May, sculptures and objects are also displayed around the garden.

Separately from the advertised shows we work with both private clients and interior designers – in the case of the former helping to build a collection of paintings; for the latter finding paintings to complement their own work.

Beneath the Surface: William Stott of Oldham and British Impressionism

William Stott of Oldham’s painting Le Passeur (The Ferryman) is considered a key moment in the breakthrough of British Art to naturalism and established Stott as one of the most progressive British artists of his day.

Secured for the British public with funds provided by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Art Fund (with a contribution from The Wolfson Foundation) and The Hintze Family Charitable Foundation, this painting is now being displayed in Southampton as part of a tour of UK galleries in partnership with Tate.

This exhibition will show Stott in the company of those who, like him, contributed to the development of British Naturalism and Impressionism and will also include examples of French Impressionism, drawn from Southampton’s permanent collection, to place British art of the 1880s and 1890s more broadly in a dialogue with French painting of that time. Shown alongside Le Passeur will be work by some of Stott’s contemporaries who were influenced by the move in painting toward rural Naturalism, illustrating what connects Stott to them at this moment in his career and what distinguishes his singular vision.
