Ethelbert White (1891-1972): Works from The Artist's Family

17 September - 24 October 2020

Influenced by the European modern movement, Ethelbert White was one of the most distinctive English landscape painters of the 1920s and 30s. Fundamental to his artistic position during this period were the book illustrations and independent prints he produced in wood engraving. Aesthetically he remained close to Paul and John Nash and with them he was an active member of the London Group throughout the inter war period.

 

The man himself was a legend in his own lifetime. The naive, rustic charm and simple gaiety of his art reinforced his image as an artist who led a bohemian life, travelling the country in a gypsy caravan with his wife Betty.

 

This important exhibition of the artist's work is drawn from the artist's family collection and includes paintings, watercolours, drawings and wood engravings.
