From Hockney to Grayson Perry

Venue: Corn Hall

Open Box Office opening hours

Evening viewing 7th June 6.30-7.45pm

Even when abstraction held sway in the ‘50s and ‘60s, there remained a strong figurative tradition among British artists; it seems strange now that David Hockney was regarded as something of a rebel at the Royal College for focussing on the figure. This exhibition celebrates this tradition through the etchings and other print media of some of our most important post war artists – including Lucian Freud and Frank Auerbach, the Hockney and Rego generation, through to today’s leading artists such as Grayson Perry. Some work will be for sale.
