Sorolla: Spanish Master of Light
18 March – 7 July 2019
The first UK exhibition of Spain’s Impressionist, Sorolla, in over a century.
Known as the ‘master of light’ for his iridescent canvases, this is a rare opportunity to see the most complete exhibition of Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida’s (1863–1923) paintings outside Spain.
From the vivid seascapes, garden views, and bather scenes for which he is most renowned, to portraits, landscapes and genre scenes of Spanish life, the exhibition features 58 works spanning Sorolla’s career – many of which are travelling from private collections and from afar.
Exhibition organised by the National Gallery and the National Gallery of Ireland, in collaboration with Museo Sorolla.

The Renaissance Nude
3 March — 2 June 2019B
The naked body is uncovered in this clever showThe Times
Trace the development of the nude through some of the great masters of the Renaissance. Bringing together works by artists such as Titian, Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Dürer and Cranach, we shed light on a visual tradition at its most vital moment.
The 15th and 16th centuries were a pivotal time for the nude in Western art. A renewed interested in ancient Greek and Roman art brought the human body to the forefront of artistic innovation. Artists on both sides of the Alps – Perugino, Pollaiuolo and Gossaert among others – were copying from classical models, experimenting with naturalistic approaches, as well as exploring new, non-religious subject matter.
At the same time, the nude was transforming Christian art, encouraging modern and dynamic representations of age-old themes, from the story of Adam and Eve to the crucifixion.
This spectacular exhibition explores these important changes in a selection of exquisite works. From full-scale paintings to jewel-like illustrations, bronze statuettes to anatomical studies, they contrast idealised beauty with the ageing body, and public images with more intimate, private works.
Together, they offer an insight into a visual tradition that became central to European art, which still resonates with artists and audiences today.

Josie Eastwood Fine Art Exhibition
Josie has opened her new gallery in Longstock, Hampshire. Well worth a detour to see it.
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.

Augustus John: Drawn from Life
Colonel T E Lawrence, 1919 by Augustus John © Estate of Augustus John/Tate, London 2018
Saturday, May 18, 2019 to Sunday, September 29, 2019
In partnership with Poole Museum and co-curated with David Boyd Haycock, this exhibition of the art of Augustus John looks in detail at his work, particularly in the decades between the two world wars. At his peak, John’s reputation as one of the towering figures in British art was based upon his extraordinary talent, both as a draughtsman and portraitist, as well as his bohemian lifestyle.
Drawn from Life is a celebration of John’s contribution to British art of the 20th century and the opportunity to marvel at his extraordinary use of line, colour and form to create art of timeless beauty. With works drawn from a wide range of museums and galleries, including Tate, as well as from private collections around the UK, this exhibition is a comprehensive retrospective of a great British artist.
The exhibition represents a partnership between Salisbury Museum and Poole Museum, under the umbrella of the Wessex Museums Partnership, supported by Arts Council England. Poole Museum will be showing Henry Lamb: Out of the Shadows from 18 May – 29 September, 2019.
THE C C LAND EXHIBITIONPIERRE BONNARDTHE COLOUR OF MEMORY
UNTIL 6 MAY 2019
Pierre Bonnard Le Jardin 1936 Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris (Paris, France).
Exquisite colour on canvas from the artist who captured moments in time
This is the first major exhibition of Pierre Bonnard’s work in the UK since the much-loved show at Tate 20 years ago. It will allow new generations to discover Bonnard’s unconventional use of colour, while surprising those who think they already know him.
Born 1867, Bonnard was, with Henri Matisse, one of the greatest colourists of the early 20th century. He preferred to work from memory, imaginatively capturing the spirit of a moment and expressing it through his unique handling of colour and innovative sense of composition.
The exhibition concentrates on Bonnard’s work from 1912, when colour became a dominant concern, until his death in 1947. It presents landscapes and intimate domestic scenes which capture moments in time – where someone has just left the room, a meal has just finished, a moment lost in the view from the window, or a stolen look at a partner.
