Sorolla, paints and packing


Slightly struggling, I am putting together a list of equipment for artists to take to Casa Rosa for our week of painting in October. As I  try to make a reasonable (not enormous) list of suggested colours I thought I’d look at palettes used by Spanish masters. Joachin Sorolla, a glorious artist renowned for his depiction of light was my first thought; what a  distraction. Every picture is singing with life and light.

There is a major exhibition of his work coming to the National Gallery in London in spring of 2019. For more information try this link Sorolla exhibition

Apparently his plein air palette was as follows: Cobalt Violet, Rose Madder, All the Cadmium Reds, Cadmium Orange, All the Cadmium Yellows, Yellow Ochre, Chrome Green, Viridian, Prussian Blue, Cobalt Blue, French Ultramarine, Lead White

Newspaper article about Sorolla

So many happy distractions and I am no further on with what to take re equipment for a Spanish painting holiday. Clearly, a full Sorolla palette is not very helpful. The list will emerge very soon.

 

Henry Lamb in Salisbury Museum


Out of the Shadows

 

Henry Lamb (1883-1960) stands amongst the most distinctive, talented but unjustly forgotten figurative painters of the early decades of the last century.  The excellent Out of the Shadows exhibition at Salisbury Museum is the first major retrospective in over 30 years and aims to put Lamb back in the forefront of twentieth Century British art.

WELL WORTH A VISIT

The exhibition is on until 30th September, 2018.

 

Henry Lamb was one of the leading British figurative painters of the first part of the 20th century. He was also an accomplished musician, trained as a doctor and his friends described him as a well-read and erudite conversationalist. A close friend of Augustus John, patron of Stanley Spencer and friends with members of the Bloomsbury Group, he was a founder member of the Camden Town Group in 1911. Portraiture played an important role in his career as a painter, but his townscapes and landscapes as well as his early subject pictures of Ireland and Brittany and his work in both World Wars reveal him to be a painter of considerable range and talent. This exhibition is the first major retrospective of Henry Lamb’s work since 1984. Time then for him to emerge from the shadows…

The exhibition represents a partnership between The Salisbury Museum and Poole Museum and  is co-curated by Harry Moore-Gwyn, an independent curator, dealer and writer on modern British art, whose previous shows have included Kenneth Rowntree (Pallant House Gallery, Chichester and Fry Art Gallery, Saffron Walden), Laurie Lee (Royal Geographical Society) and Walter Bonner Gash (Alfred East Gallery, Kettering).fullsizeoutput_be9

The exhibition represents a partnership between The Salisbury Museum and Poole Museum under the umbrella of the Wessex Museums Partnership, supported by Arts Council England. Poole Museum, who will mount a similar Henry Lamb exhibition in 2019, are curating an exhibition about Augustus John in 2018, which comes to Salisbury in 2019.
