From the Cornish Coast to the Malvern Hills: British Impressionism from the 19th and 20th Centuries
Saturday 4 March – 1 July 2023 (closed Sundays) | Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum
British Impressionists characteristically painted en plein air (outdoors) and, with free brushstrokes and joyful colours, focused on the interplay between working people, families at leisure and the landscapes they lived in.
This exhibition brings together wonderful works from the Worcester City collection, the Bowerman Trust and Southampton Art Gallery to celebrate the links between Worcestershire and the Newlyn School of artists who were pivotal in this magical moment of British art.
From the Cornish Coast to the Malvern Hills: British Impressionism from the 19th and 20th Centuries includes paintings by Stanhope Forbes, Dame Laura Knight and Elizabeth Forbes. Camille and Lucian Pissarro represent the influence of French Impressionists.
Free entry. Plan your visit to Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum.
