Art Quake: Post-Impressionism and British Art

  • 9 February — 1 June 2019 *on now

In 1910 the art critic Roger Fry introduced the work of Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse and Picasso to an unaware British audience. He coined the term ‘post-impressionism’ for his landmark exhibition on European modern art, which later became known as the ‘Art Quake of 1910’.

In this exhibition drawn entirely from the Gallery’s collection, discover how a host of British artists including Spencer Gore, Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell and Matthew Smith were inspired to forge ahead with a new approach to painting which had an unparalleled impact on Modern British art.

Nick Goss, Commute, 2018, Oil, pigment and screenprint on linen, 250 x 150 cm, Private Collection © The Artist

Nick Goss: Morley's Mirror

  • 2 March — 9 June 2019 *on now

Nick Goss (b. 1981) reimagines his home city of London, transforming the cityscape and its interior spaces to explore themes of displacement, natural disaster and the psychology of place.
In his large-scale narrative paintings Goss combines observations of everyday life in his South London urban surroundings with impressions of the Netherlands’ 1953 Zeeland flood and JG Ballard’s pioneering work of climate fiction, The Drowned World. He uses a collage-based approach that layers scavenged imagery drawn from personal memories, contemporary culture and historical events, collapsing time and space.
To create a visual conversation with his paintings, Goss has selected works from the Gallery’s collection by Modern British artists who continue to inspire him, including Michael Andrews, Edward Burra and Paul Nash.

Harold Gilman, Tea in the Bedsitter, 1916, oil on canvas, 71 x 92 cm, Kirklees Collection: Huddersfield Art Galler

Harold Gilman: Beyond Camden Town

  • 2 March — 9 June 2019 *on now

British painter Harold Gilman (1876–1919) broke away from his contemporaries to produce a view of modern urban life in the early 20th century that was entirely distinct. He combined the gritty formality of the Camden Town Group with the vitality of post-impressionism, with its thickly applied paint and vivid colours.

Gilman’s subject matter and manner of painting were unusual bedfellows. His paintings infused scenes of everyday domestic life with a vigour clearly influenced by Vincent van Gogh and Edouard Vuillard. His intimate depictions of domestic interiors
captured a moment in time around the First World War when perceptions of gender, class and urban living were rapidly changing.

Discover one of Britain’s most distinguished 20th century painters in the first exhibition of his work in over 35 years.

A partnership with Djanogly Gallery, Nottingham Lakeside Arts.
