DAVID INSHAW B.1943 Gannet and Raven 2011 Oil on canvas 24 x 24 inches

Inshaw is one of the most important figurative painters working in post-war Britain. Albeit wholly original, Inshaw’s work shares the visionary intensity of William Blake, Samuel Palmer and Stanley Spencer, all artists whom he reveres. His subjects are innately linked with the landscape of Wiltshire were he lives, using it as an evocative medium to convey intense emotion about human life, love and transience. His lyrical, sometimes enigmatic nudes are often also inextricably connected with the strong association of particular places, alluding to particular memories within the artist’s life.
The exhibition will consist of forty pictures and will present new work made specially for the exhibition along with paintings from earlier in his career. It will include landscapes, figure subjects and an extraordinary new series of ‘tree portraits’. In addition the show will include The Badminton Game (1972-3) generously lent from the Tate’s collection, the iconic image that first brought Inshaw to national prominence.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday 10am to 6pm, Saturdays 11am to 4pm (*please note we are closed on Saturday 27th April), Sundays and bank holidays closed.
